Taekwondo Opportunities

In 2015 Eric Wright with Coach Johnny Birch competed at the first Inas World Taekwondo Championships in Ecuador in September 2015 and claimed the individual Gold medal for the USA Team. Athletes Without Limits continues to seek talented athletes with intellectual disability to represent the US at national and international taekwondo events. 

Inas/World Taekwondo Opportunities
As the US member of INAS, Athletes Without Limits offers opportunities for athletes to compete at the highest levels thanks to a recent collaboration between INAS and the World Taekwondo Federation.  Qualified athletes may be able to travel to international competitions with the US delegation. Please review eligibility guidelines and contact us if you know of any athletes who may be interested.
