XVIII South East TaeKwonDo Opens 2021
Venue Address: Hertfordshire Sports Village, DeHavilland Campus, Mosquito Way, Hatfield, AL10 9EU
English TaeKwonDo Opens 14/03/21
Why our TaeKwonDo tournaments?
We feel all practitioners should try L.T.S.I. TaeKwonDo Tournaments as they are open to all I.T.F. TaeKwonDo groups around the U.K. The L.T.S.I. host two events per year and these are both open. Our first one is the hugely popular South East Opens which usually has between 300 to 400 competitors taking part – we are confident that NO other group based within a 30 mile radius can say their events are better, fairer or offer the same real value for money.
Fully Matted & Insured Events
Our TaeKwonDo tournaments are fully matted and insured. The event is attended by all I.T.F. styles and Independents from all corners of the U.K. This event is classified by many as the one to win. There are a minor few we have banned from our events over the years for not following our ethos as they have disgraced themselves – we live by the tenets and will uphold the founders’ last wish to bring all TaeKwonDo back together, even if it is on a small scale.
How we created the English T.K.D. Opens
The second event was the invitationals – this was strictly by invite only and was only open to those that attended our main event above. Due to popularity, this has been renamed to the ‘L.T.S.I. English Opens’ from September 2012 – getting 450 competitors a time, it really is popular.
All our events are held at a multi million pound sports complex in Hertfordshire University – we are confident that no other U.K. group will offer a relaxed event with such a high class of attendees. All events are about building unity and friendships. Those that support us are not just supporters, but are a network that wants all corners of the TaeKwonDo community to unite.
Be part of a NEW unified group building bridges in UK TaeKwonDo
So come try our events and see if they suit you. If you are open minded and looking to be part of something really special ie building bridges in UK TaeKwonDo this is for you, we truly believe we have the answer. Your members will love our events, but don’t just take our word for it.
We look forward to welcoming you at one of our events very soon.

Important Message: 20/07/20
The English TaeKwonDo championship has been running for 9 years – I.T.F. and non I.T.F. practitioners attend these events in unity and harmony. As a U.K. group not interested in political views, differences or people that think their grade gives them special rights, we insist all visitors attending respect everyone at our events and be courteous and respectful at all times.
IX English Opens to be hosted online –
As this virus is causing issues globally and millions are still cautious of it, we have made the decision to host this years’ event online. As a responsible group that cares for our friends and the T.K.D. Community, we feel hosting the event at the venue in October is too soon. After talking to many Instructors and practitioners, they feel online is the right way forward for the 2020 event.
62+ Clubs & Groups in our network
L.T.S.I. has built a network of over 60+ groups / clubs since 2004. Our vision is simple – ego’s are not welcome at our events and we will not treat high ranks like gods. We have many like minded clubs working with us now. These are clubs that are only interested in building bridges and bringing TaeKwonDo back together again. Our events are investors in people. All our events are not about profit, they are about charity and delivering the best we can for our huge network of friends. These tournaments are the peoples tournaments.
