Working for ITF

One of the first issues the new ITF Board had to handle after the elections of April 2019 was the establishment of the ITF Standing Committees.

In September, during the Board Meeting, GrandMaster Frank Vanberghen was appointed as chairman of the newly established Audit, Risk & Compliance Committee. After he has been composing his team, and after the approval of the Board mid October, the committee is ready to work.

The Board also approved the candidature and designation of Master Virginia Dionisi as member of the Disciplinary Committee. Also this committee is now ready to start working for the ITF members.

ITF-Belgium is well represented in the ITF, with a Board Member and 2 Committee Members along its members.


European Week of Sports 2019

September 23rd-29th


For the European Week of Sports some European ITF Taekwon-Do schools/clubs are launching -at the same moment- a movie about girls and women in Taekwon-Do: Ge-Baek (Lokeren, Belgium), Ssung Zsang (Groningen, The Netherlands), Total Taekwon-Do (London, England) & Taekwon-Do Tigers (Tampere, Finland). With this movie the clubs want to focus on gender equality, showing the importance of having female practitioners in Taekwon-Do by putting them into the spotlights for a moment.
