State and National Tournaments

Immerse yourself in the exciting world of Taekwondo championships with Empower Taekwondo! We regularly participate in public tournaments and championships, particularly those organized by the prestigious Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) of the United States , both within and outside of our state. Every year, Empower also hosts state championship, bringing the thrill of competition right here in our beautiful historic city of New Bern, North Carolina. Check out this year’s Cariolina AAU Championship.

Our dedicated members and students have the chance to get professional trainings, and then compete in a variety of events, including Olympic Sparring, Point Sparring, Poomsae (Taekwondo Forms), Board Breaking, and Weapon Sparring. Each athlete is paired with competitors within their belt rank, gender age, and weight, ensuring a fair and challenging match.

At Empower Taekwondo, we don’t just collect medals – we create warriors and memories. Our athletes regularly return from tournaments adorned with gold, silver, and bronze, their smiles as precious as the metals they win. Behind each triumph lies the joy of participation and the sweat of hard work. We celebrate the growth that each tournament brings, as our students transform challenges into stepping stones towards success.

We strongly encourage our students to seize this opportunity to enhance their skills, spirit, and resilience by participating in these tournaments.
