USA Taekwondo is excited to announce that the 2016 USA Taekwondo Nationals Championships will take place in Richmond, Virginia, returning to the east coast for the first time since the 90s.

The competition will take place from 4-10 July - an additional day of competition compared to previous years, with on-site registration beginning on the 3rd, 2016 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. Richmond is the capital of the commonwealth of Virginia and rich in history, being home to many key events in the American Revolution era with so much to see and do in those hours when you and your family are not involved in the competition.

USA Taekwondo Events Director, Jeanna Salgado said: "We are thrilled to be taking Nationals to Virginia and looking forward to bringing a fantastic experience to all of our members. Nationals is such an important tournament and the whole organization is totally focussed on providing the most efficient and enjoyable tournament USA Taekwondo has ever staged."

We'll bring you more details, including information on how to book hotels at the best rates and the detailed event schedule shortly, so look out for those.

We thank you for your patience in waiting for this announcement and look forward to seeing you all there!
