The SVGTA is the governing body for Taekwondo in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Taekwondo is a Global Martial Art & Olympic Sport that is practiced in over 205 nations, spanning five continents. The SVGTA is affiliated to:
- National Olympic Committee (NOC)-National Body
- Pan American Taekwondo Union (PATU)- Regional body
- The World Taekwondo (WT)-International body.
Since the SVGTA is a member of the international body World Taekwondo (WT), formerly referred to as the World Taekwondo Federation, we must comply with all WT rules and regulations. One of these regulations is the implementation of the new Global Membership System (GMS) that all affiliates of the WT must commence using in their respective association/Federation. Read here.
Each club member is expected to become a member of the SVGTA. Your membership is vital to the prosperity and continued existence of the association. In doing so you help to continue the work of the founder- Mr. Albert Maloney- and the pioneers who dedicated their efforts to ensure continuity and development of our wonderful art.
