First and foremost, on 5 September Sweden welcomes the WTE European Under 21 Championships 2019. The event takes the relay from the previous host country Poland, and promises a spectacular event, which will thrill the young and the not-so-young of the taekwondo family. The event will be realized 5-8 September in Helsingborg, Sweden at the namesake arena of the city.



For one more year, the taekwondo city of Marina d’Or will host two Taekwondo Europe events. Initially, the WTE European Cadet Championships 2019, which will be realized 1-3 October and the European Junior Championships 2019 on 4-6 October. Marina d’Or, all lively and colorful, seems the ideal place to welcome children and young athletes, and as it was proved last year, both the organization and the hospitality are valued of a European taekwondo championship.



The cosy city of Bari was decided to be the host of two very significant events for the sport. The elite of European Taekwondo and Para taekwondo will be present in Bari, focusing on the road to Tokyo.

For the first time the capital city of Dublin will host the WTE Masters Championships 2019, as well as the biannual Olympic Weight Categories Championships 2019 for both Seniors and Youth. Worth to mention that the Olympic Weight Categories Championships will be the last event counting to the Olympic ranking for qualifying to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, apart from the European Qualification Tournament of the following year.



The athletic year will end in Germany with the WTE European Kids Championships 2019. The event which had been realized in Marina d’Or in Spain during last year, passes to the city of Sindelfingen, also host city of the Children President’s Cup in the past, where the event is scheduled to kick off between 7-8 December 2019.


Apart from Taekwondo Europe events, the Coaches Seminars will continue in Albania during the Albanian Open Tournament, for all the ones who wish to become an accredited WTE coach and obtain a Coach license card. Combined with various additional education programs coming up during 2020, Taekwondo Europe aims to a series of learning and educational activities for both athletes and coaches, aligned to the spirit of innovation and development for Taekwondo in Europe.  


Aiming to build the taekwondo champions of tomorrow, the International Taekwondo Summer Camp 2019 was realized in Estonia during August 2019 with 150 athletes from 11 countries participating in training groups of Kids, Cadets, Juniors, and Seniors and practicing both Kyorugi and Poomsae.

The camp included a number of top qualified international coaches, with Mr Valerii Bruns as Headcoach of the 2019 summer camp.
