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.


First ITF Board of Directors Meeting after the elections

On September 5th, 6th and 7th the newly elected ITF Board of Directors held its first meeting in Frankfurt, Germany. Although the last weeks a lot of work had already been done, and some decisions were made through digital channels, the list of items on the agenda was very long. Each day the meeting started at 9.00h and lasted until 20.00-20.30h.

However, the meeting was very constructive and passed in a very positive athmosphere. The future of the ITF and its members is looking bright for the upcoming 4 years.


World Championships 2019

Inzell, Germany April 23rd-28th

The belgian team performed very well at the ITF Taekwon-Do WC. The performances were very well, the level was high. Some made it to the second, third and 4th rounds, just missing out the medals, but each one of the athletes competed with the right motivation, spirit and enthousiasm and behaved the same way outside of the ring. ITF-Belgium can be very proud of this generation!

Many thanks to the coaches, umpires and officials. Also a big thank you to our sponsors, Mighty Fist and FROS.

On the ITF Congress Meeting, Sunday 28th April, Master Annick Van Driessche was elected as Board Member of the ITF Board of Directors, with GrandMaster Paul Weiler as newly elected President of the ITF for the next 4 years.
