Australian Taekwondo is the national sporting organisation for Taekwondo in Australia

Australian Taekwondo has the broader remit to develop and promote the sport of Taekwondo in Australia, including the delivery of National events, Performance Pathway programs and participation growth initiatives


Despite a 2000-year history, taekwondo has only been an Olympic sport since Sydney 2000, where Lauren Burns claimed the first Australian gold medal in taekwondo. Through collaboration with CombatAUS, AUSTKD delivers pathway programs that support up and coming athletes with development opportunities, supporting them to perform on the international stage


The CombatAUS National Performance Centre (NPC) is an athlete-centred, coach-led performance environment for Australian Judo and Taekwondo athletes to further develop their skills and push their international performance to new levels. The NPC is designed to support its full-time athletes with targeted technical and support services to help them reach international success at major competitions.

Based in Melbourne, the NPC was recently awarded Olympic Training Centre recognition by the Australian Olympic Committee. The Olympic Training Centre status recognises the role the facility plays in preparing Australian athletes to achieve international success on the world stage and compete at the Olympic Games.
