We are excited to announce, this year the Taekwondo competition is again, a fully accredited Montana Taekwondo event, including MTA computers, scoring systems, and those who work as judges and referees will receive a work credit.

Master Brice Cady is the Chief Referee and the 2018 MTA rules will be posted on the State Games website this week. The Big Sky State Games is an entirely volunteer event and the MTA will be supporting it with their superb entourage that includes talent, technology, knowledge and professionalism. Again, Referees, Judges and Table volunteers will receive MTA credit by working the event. Forms, sparring, board breaking (blue belt and above) and team poomse. We will have a team sparring exhibition for any competitor who is interested.
