In a move that demonstrates a commitment to fairness and valuing the contributions of referees, the President of Kombat Taekwondo, Rick Shin, said: “I am proud to announce that our Kombat Taekwondo referees will NOT be charged for seminars or annual membership dues. After all, no one pays to be trained for a company they’re hired for, right? Some referees will be appointed as Technical Delegates of Kombat Taekwondo and will share in the event profits.”

Technical Delegates will be in charge of oversee the tournament, making sure it operates in the best quality possible. After the event they will have to submit a report that will help to improve every championship.

Master Shin further emphasized, “Kombat Taekwondo has big plans to organize championships globally across Youth, Junior, Amateur, and Professional Leagues. Referees are crucial partners in our journey, more than just volunteers or employees. Without their dedication and expertise, our events would not be feasible. We urge you to apply and become a pioneering group of Kombat Taekwondo Referees.”
