Masters Games

Thank you to all those who  supported the 2019 Australian Masters Games Taekwondo, held in Adelaide Saturday 12th October.

The event was a huge success with participants from all walks of Taekwondo, from across Australia and New Zealand taking part in the true spirit of martial arts.

Contested events included International Tul (ITF style), World Poomsae (WT style), Sparring International (ITF style), Sparring World (WT style), Team Demonstration and Creative Forms / Patterns.

New friendships were made, old friendships were rekindled and lots of great Taekwondo action to boot, no pun intended.

A huge appreciation to all those who supported and particularly those who volunteered their time to act as officials on the day.

See you all again soon I am sure.

Tournament Organizer, Master Michael Muleta

About the Australian Masters Games

The Australian Masters Games is a biennial sporting event that is regarded as one of the premier and largest participation sporting events on the Australian sporting landscape.

The Australian Masters Games provide an occasion to:

  • make the wider community aware of the benefits of sport;
  • encourage and engage the masters sport demographic in ongoing activity that is beneficial to their long term health and wellbeing;
  • encourage a positive active lifestyle in the community that is balanced with social outcome and opportunities;
  • reaffirm with all levels of sports administration the importance of mature-aged sports people who are seeking opportunities to participate; and
  • demonstrate the myriad of attractions of sport: skill, achievement, competition, social interaction, and satisfaction.

The event is open to anyone. The only criteria to compete in the Australian Masters Games is that you must meet the minimum age requirement, which in most sports is 30+ years. It does not impose qualifying standards and welcomes participants from all over the world.

The Australian Masters Games offer participants a wide range of different sports, from softball to athletics to dragon boat to boxing.

This variety of sports on offer provides the opportunity for participants to try a new sport, compete in multiple sports during the week and register as an individual or in a team.
