COVID-19

Taekwondo Canada has developed a document with recommendations to Return to Train in the Dojang. 

We invite all athletes, practitioners and family members to get familiar with this document and make proper adjustments on your plans to return to Train to your Dojang.

COVID-19

PLEASE REVIEW THIS DOCUMENT PRIOR TO RESUMPTION OF TRAINING OF ANY KIND.

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A RETURN TO COMPETITION DOCUMENT.
AT THIS TIME, THERE IS NO TIMELINE ON WHEN COMPETITION WILL RESUME OR WHAT IT WILL LOOK LIKE. TAEKWONDO CANADA WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS AND WILL PUBLISH GUIDELINES AS APPROPRIATE

 

Different regions have been affected differently with COVID-19 and will have unique policies regarding gatherings of individuals that will ultimately determine how group training will resume. 

This document does not supersede any provincial guidelines or health orders.  Every individual club owner must follow the provincial and health authorities.

 

 

Key Risks

  • Taekwondo training is typically completed indoors which increases risk.
  • Taekwondo classes typically include members from multiple households.
  • Poomsae is a non-contact sport when performed individually; however, team poomsae may involve contact during freestyle routines or training and should not be trained at this time. 
  • Kyorugi is a contact sport and therefore at a high risk of droplet transmission. There must not be sparring at this time. However, competition drills which maintain physical distancing, are non-contact, and are not using handheld targets or kicking shields are permitted.

ALL CONTACT MUST BE AVOIDED IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN PHYSICAL DISTANCING


We have included a Risk assessment and mitigation tool in the documents below, provided by our partners at OTP.


Ongoing updates regarding the novelty virus COVID-19 and measures taken by Taekwondo Canada and our partners.
