There are very few taekwondo practitioners in Trinidad and Tobago compared to that of other sports. One pro of this situation would be that for athletic individuals seeking to represent Team TTO at international competition the pool of athletes is small so there is a lot of room for upward mobility and relatively fast ascension to the Trinidad and Tobago National Taekwondo team. However, the flip side to this coin is that current competitive players have a relatively small body of players to train with, which makes it a little difficult to hone their skills to the point of becoming a successful international player. Now the solution to this quandary is simple, the taekwondo community needs to start recruiting!
