2018 World Taekwondo International Referee Seminars

Welcome to Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada!

Taekwondo Canada would like to invite you to beautiful Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada for the 2018 World Taekwondo Poomsae International Referee Seminar (May 6-9, 2018) and Kyorugi International Referee Seminar (May 10-13, 2018). 

For some, Burnaby is not a new name. Burnaby successfully hosted the 2016 World Taekwondo World Junior Championships. 

Just 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver, Burnaby is a playground for active travelers. From the shipping bonanza that is Metrotown, to the world of cuisine within walking distance in the Heights, to the calendar of multicultural arts at the Michael J. Fox theatre, Burnaby offers something for the explorer in all of us. 

You are invited to Burnaby and we will see you there in May 2018!
