As an Olympic sport NZETKD understands the process that is required to ensure our best Taekwondo athletes are positioned to allow them to pursue their Olympic dream.
We strive to create an environment where the goals of all members are given the best possible opportunity of being achieved. This includes a robust, fair and transparent selection process.
It is on this basis that our model as a governing organisation is built and coupled with our vision.
