Sad news

fox2We are very sorry to be the bearers of sad news, but our beloved friend and TKD partner Toby Fox passed away last Sunday from injuries following a moto accident…. We are speechless.

Toby joined ITF Brussels in September 2007 as a yellow belt and gained his black belt in September 2014. During all these years Toby has been helping and organizing so many things in the club, and, as we all know, he has been a real example for all of us, always positive and trying to help others, with a smile and eagerness to learn.

Toby had many different and good qualities and we will always remember him as he was: a great friend, great person, great artist, great businessman, great sportsman, great student, and a great World Cup Champion. We want to say good bye to our friend as he deserves….

An official announcement will be made as soon as we get more information.

Sabum Virginia and Bo Sabum Gonzalo on behalf of all his TKD friends.
