What is the Lehigh University Taekwondo Club (LUTKD)?
LUTKD is for Lehigh University students who wish to train in the traditional martial art of Taekwondo. With help of Master Lee Arnold, students train hard to reach their highest potential (and of course, have a good time doing it). The classes are held on the school premises of Lehigh Valley Taekwondo (LVTKD).

Does Lehigh University Taekwondo Club participate in tournaments?
Lehigh University Taekwondo Club participates in the university Taekwondo League called INCTL as a team since 2003. In INCTL, universities like Yale, Cornell, MIT, and Princeton get together throughout the school year.

INCTL mostly follows WTF rules with some modifications. For more information about INCTL, please visit their website.

For those Lehigh students who are interested in competing, we usually hold special sparring classes about twice per week.

Students may also choose to compete individually. Tournaments are usually held during spring and fall.

Club members are encouraged to go and support competitors from the club, even if they are not interested in competing themselves. Just watching the tournament is still a great learning experience on its own.

Approximately how many competitions does Lehigh University TKD Team participate in?
The Lehigh University TKD Team competes in approximately 2-3 tournaments per semester, depending on interest, scheduled dates, and locations of the tournaments.

Generally the club has enough Senate Funds to cover costs of entry fees and transportation costs.

Do I have to compete if I join the club?
No, participating in tournaments is completely optional.

Does Lehigh University Taekwondo Club have a scholarship program?
No. Taekwondo is considered a club sport at Lehigh University. There are no athletic scholarships available for Taekwondo from the university, and it is likely to remain that way.
