Join the Dan Clan at the 2019 Manchester World Taekwondo Championships!

Manchester will play host to the 2019 World Taekwondo Championships and we’re looking for volunteers to join the Dan Clan. The World Championships will see the best taekwondo athletes from around the globe competing to be crowned the 2019 World Champion!

What is the Dan Clan?

The Dan Clan is the hoard of volunteers that will be volunteering at the World Championships! The name is given from the common Korean term “Dan” which denotes a degree of black belt; the top belt rank you can achieve in Taekwondo. We believe that we will have the top rank of volunteers, so the name is only fitting!
