Day 2 of the AAU Taekwondo National Championships proved to be as competitive and exciting as you would expect on “Team Day”. Wednesday’s competition schedule featured all 14 year old and older Black Belts only which included the Junior and Senior Black Belt Team divisions.
The vast majority of these divisions were ‘loaded’ with talent making the Team sport for Seniors and qualifying medal positions for Junior entirely up for grabs. As expected in a growing program, many new faces either captured or will be vying for team position in September.
