Welcome to the BTC







Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Update 16th July 2020: 

A number of documents relating to the reopening of our Taekwondo schools and dojangs have been sent to our member organisations. Please contact your member organisation of the BTC for a copy of all docuemnts. 

The devolved administrations have their own criteria and anticipated dates for return to both outdoor and indoor activities.  Clubs must refer to their home country government guidance and align it with the NGB supporting attachments.


The BTC advises that clubs in all countries review the documents with the understanding:

  • Scotland, as at 17th July 2020, no indoor activity, expected 31st July; refer to Attachment 1 for outdoor guidelines
  • England, as at 17th July 2020, refer to Attachment 1 for updated outdoor guidelines
  • England, from 25th July 2020, indoor activity may resume if prepared and safe to do so; clubs to align with Attachment 4
  • Wales, as at 17th July 2020, no indoor activity, expected 30th July; outdoor guidelines detailed in Attachment 1
  • Northern Ireland, as at 17th July 2020, indoor activity permitted, refer to Attachment 4; refer to Attachment 1 for outdoor guidelines

This pandemic continues to evolve and guidelines are subject to change.  BTC instructors must at all times refer to the BTC guidelines, policies and procedures, however common sense should ensure that all participants, spectators, etc, are kept safe and have a clear understanding of the club’s operating procedures.
