On 17th March 2012, over 280 participants from all over Malaysia attended the Elite Taekwon-Do Academy (Penang, Malaysia) Open Championship. Yang Berhormat Encik Danny Low, Penang State Exco and Mahaguru Tan Sri Datuk Wira Haji Omardin Bin Mauju, Father of Martial Arts Malaysia, were the Guest-Of-Honours for the event. Gracing the event were Master David Lau (Championship Advisor for the event), President of the Hong Kong Original Taekwon-Do Council and Coordinating Master for the Grandmaster Choi Jung Hwa Malaysian Tour, Master Daniel Sng, President and Chief Instructor of Island Taekwon-Do Centre and Master A.V.S Bathi.
This is the 1st time that Elite Taekwon-Do Academy (Penang, Malaysia) held this event. The inaugural event was organised by Ms. Sharon Chan, President of Elite Taekwon-Do Academy together with the members of Malaysia Taekwon-Do Administrative Council (MTAC). The championship saw many different catagories and the participants giving each other a tough challenge. It was a long day for all but definitely worth the time. The championship committee, together with the umpires, had worked non-stop throughout to make the event a success.
We would like to thank Ms. Sharon Chan, her members as well as the committee members of MTAC, for extending their kind hospitality to make our 1st trip to Penang an enjoyable time. With that, we congratulate them for a job well done and wish them all the best for their next major event, the President Choi Malaysian Tour.
