Show Notes

Join Coach Jim Haxton as he takes us on a behind the scenes look at the 2019 USA Taekwondo Nationals from Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Coach Jim is the staff photographer for Taekwondo Life Magazine, a Taekwondo Black Belt, and the father of a nationally ranked sparring competitor, Jillian Haxton.   

Coach Jim gives us a 4 day look at his trip to the Nationals, his perspectives on the level 1 Coaching seminar he attended, a view of the weigh-ins, and his take on competition day.

For those uninitiated, and those experienced, in National competition this interview provides a great overview of what occurs when 5000 competitors converge on a US city for a week of high level competition.
