Master Gordon Wallace

8th degree black belt ITF, Member of the ITF Umpire Committee

Master Gordon Wallace

Master Wallace started training in Taekwon-Do in 1977 in Elgin, Scotland.  He promoted to 8th Degree Master in 2014 in Dublin. 

He was one of the founder members of the United Kingdom Taekwon-Do Federation (UKTF) where he was on the Board of Directors from 1993-2007.  He served on the ITF Scotland Board of Directors from 2010 as Treasurer, Secretary General, and also as 3rd Vice President. 

During his own competitive career, he achieved a large number of National and European medals along with a World Championship Gold Medal in 1984 for Power Test.  Following this, he was the UK Assistant Coach for 3 years and the Scottish National Coach for 4 years and in that time, travelled to many European and World Championships.  In recent years he has been the ITF Scotland Pattern Coach and now travels regularly to umpire at World and European Championships.

Take this opportunity to train with Master Wallace while he is here in Auckland to conduct the ITF Umpires course.

I started training in Taekwwon-Do on 1st March 1977 at the Elgin Community Centre.  My main motive for starting Taekwon-Do was because all my friends from work were going.  As I had nothing else to do, I tagged along. Taekwwon-Do was something that I knew about, as I used to watch the classes at Elgin Community Centre when I was at school.  I would never have dreamed of pursuing such an activity.  It was not that I wasn’t interested in physical activity I may add, but because I was shy and very conscious of what my peers would say should such a ridiculous notion ever enter my head.  In later months, as it would happen, after a few scenes of “Enter the Dragon”, the lead peer decided it would be good to try this.  After work on the Thursday night, we tried our first lesson.  The rest is history………………………….
