Seat on the board

The British Taekwondo Council are in the process of going through some required structural changes and improved development to facilitate continued funding and recognition. This will not affect the BTC operations but will see a different hierarchical structure and representation. With increasing membership and already being a full member of the BTC, the UKTDC are expecting to be given a seat on the new governing board of the BTC and will be represented by secretary General Grandmaster Christopher Davies who is our current representative at the BTC meetings.

Grandmaster Davies is well qualified to represent the UKTDC on the National Governing Body as he has many years of practice, study and achievement as a foundation of knowledge and guidance.
