Grandmaster Chung Oh- Honouring and recognizing one of our Pioneers.

April 23rd, 2015  / Author: RCabanatan

On behalf of the OTA, we join our Taekwondo family in mourning the loss of one of our Taekwondo pioneers in Ontario.

Grandmaster Oh founded Chung Oh’s School of Tae Kwon Do in 1973.   Today we are linked through our art and sport, due to extensive contributions of our builders.   Grandmaster Oh’s legacies shall continue through his beloved family and students in the Taekwondo Community.

2014-2015 Quest for Gold – Ontario Athlete Assistance Program

REVISED Draft List of Ontario Card Nominations Announced!
On January 14, 2015 the OTA published a DRAFT list of nominated athletes to receive Quest for Gold – Ontario Athlete Assistance. The Quest for Gold Appeals Committee has reviewed those nominations and found they do not align with the Selection Criteria as posted on the OTA website on November 4, 2014. As a result, the process has been re-done and the following DRAFT list are those athletes who have now been nominated to receive Quest for Gold assistance for fiscal 2014- 2015. Any athlete who wishes to appeal this decision must contact the OTA directly by noon on February 24, 2015 for clarification. Once such contact has been made, if an athlete wishes to submit a formal appeal to the Ministry, a special deadline has been extended to noon on February 26
