British Taekwondo Partners with TeachAids to further develop Concussion Awareness and Understanding in Taekwondo
TeachAids is proud to announce a new partnership with British Taekwondo, the National Governing Body for Taekwondo in Great Britain. This is the first official UK partner of TeachAids to expand the CrashCourse Concussion offering.
Together, we will distribute CrashCourse Concussion to educate British Taekwondo’s Officials, Players, Coaches and the wider community through its membership, totalling nearly 18,000 individuals. Because Taekwondo is a contact sport, it is important to understand the signs and symptoms of a concussion, and how to respond if a concussion has been sustained. In an effort to promote positive health and safety, British Taekwondo will make this education freely available on the British Taekwondo website to educate their larger community and also embed it into its existing Coach and Referee Training Courses
“It is exciting to see Taekwondo athletes gain better awareness and understanding surrounding concussions.” said three-time GBR Olympian and British Taekwondo President, Sarah Stevenson MBE.
“British Taekwondo is excited to partner with TeachAids and their team of experts in the field of concussion,” said British Taekwondo Chief Executive Ian Leafe. “This partnership will not only provide a valuable resource for our Coaches, Officials and Members but it is also another critical step towards ensuring the safety of our athletes at all levels, both in practice and in competition.”
“It’s been an incredible experience to work with British Taekwondo to institute CrashCourse concussion education into their programming. The leadership they have exhibited to make their sport safer is an example for all,” said Dr Piya Sorcar, Founder and CEO of TeachAids.
The CrashCourse curriculum will be instituted throughout British Taekwondo’s programmes nationwide starting today via https://www.britishtaekwondo.org.uk/crashcourse-concussion-education. To find out more about CrashCourse by TeachAids, visit crashcourse.teachaids.org.
