ITF HQ Newsletter #04 – April 2022

Dear Taekwon-Do Practitioners and Friends,

April has been a very eventful month, both in a positive and a poignant way. We celebrated the 67th anniversary of Taekwon-Do on April the 11th. It has been 67 years since the name Taekwon-Do was introduced and the art started spreading worldwide. Grand Master Peter Sanders, vice president of ITF HQ visited Korea and we, together with Secretary General Mast. Zibby Kruk, used this occasion to reflect on the past and talk about the present. The future looks bright for ITF-HQ Korea. We are proud of what we have achieved upto now, in bringing back ITF Taekwon-Do to South Korea, and fulfilling the Founder’s dream.

Dear Taekwon-Do Practitioners and Friends,

Everyone has been deeply disturbed by the Russian military invasion of Ukraine that has affected the lives of millions of people on both sides of the conflict.

The International Taekwon-Do Federation HQ strongly condemns this act of aggression against Ukraine and stands firmly with all who suffer because of war. We call for an immediate halt to the hostilities, and appeal to both sides to come to a peaceful and humane resolution through negotiations.

Approximately a month ago we were welcoming a new year as marked by the Gregorian/ solar calendar. Now, one month later, we are celebrating the Lunar new year, that begins with the first new moon of the lunar calendar. In Korea and other Asian countries, the Lunar New year is a big celebration. During this time, many Koreans visit their families, perform ancestral cremations, wear hanbok, eat traditional food, and play folk games. Additionally, children often receive money from their elders after performing a formal bow.

Dear Taekwon-Do Practitioners and Friends,     

As the end of 2021 approaches, I would like to reflect briefly on the challenges that Taekwon-Do has faced in the year that has passed. Obviously, the Covid-19 pandemic which has spread throughout the entire world like wild fire has affected everybody immensely, including Taekwon-Do families. Many have lost students, businesses, all this in spite of trying to survive on their own and serve students via online classes and tests.

Dear Taekwon-Do Practitioners and Friends,
This month we paid respect to the founder of Taekwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi, on the occasion of his 103rd birthday. Anniversaries such as these always initiate reflections about the art that the General created, and where we are now as its practitioners. Has his dream been fulfilled by his disciples?
