2018 World Taekwondo International Referee Seminars

Welcome to Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada!

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

For some, Burnaby is no stranger since the city hosted the 2016 World Junior World Taekwondo 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. 

We look forward to seeing you in Burnaby this May!
