Individual Memberships

We've provided the answers to some commonly asked questions about our individual memberships.
Your membership not only benefits your local club and state association but also contributes directly to the development of Taekwondo in Australia. 
Joining an affilaited club offers a fulfilling opportunity to engage with your community, forge new friendships, enhance physical and mental well-being, boost confidence, alleviate stress, and enjoy a great time!
No, you can be a member and just enjoy participating, training and the camaraderie of your club. 
For those seeking an extra challenge, consider upgrading to a National Athlete License. This upgrade grants you exclusive access to state and national competitions, reserved solely for Australian Taekwondo affiliated club members.
Safe, fair and inclusive sport is for everybody. Clubs who join Australian Taekwondo have undergone various governance compliance checks, which are encouraged by the Australian Sports Commission and Sport Integrity Australia to help foster a safe, fair and sustainable national sport sector. Our club checks are in place to keep members safe and ensure that anyone who walks through the doors of an affiliated club is treated respectfully and fairly. 
What does this mean?
When a club affiliates with Australian Taekwondo, they are affiliating with an organisation that has business checks and governance structures in place that are of a national and world standard. When you visit an Australian Taekwondo club and see an affiliated club flag or window sticker you can rest assured that the club operates to certain safety and professional standards.
