USA Taekwondo

The Athletes Advisory Council (AAC) advocates on behalf of all USA Taekwondo athletes. The AAC is responsible for broadening communication between USA Taekwondo and sparring, poomsae, and paralympic athletes and serves as a source of input and advice to the USA Taekwondo Board of Directors with regard to current and contemplated USA Taekwondo policies.    

AAC meetings are held the first Saturday of the month at 11AM Eastern. They are public unless otherwise indicated. If you're interested in attending, please email Carissa Fu at aac@usatkd.org for details.
