It is important to highlight the unusual growth in quantity and technical quality achieved by Taekwon-Do in Chile. The presence in all the events makes the development of the practice increase every time.The last weekend between January 11 and 13 was a seminar of the cycle of traditional practice of this wonderful Martial Art.This was in charge of GM Javier Dacak of the Republic of Paraguay, Vice President of the ITF. Who has been developing a great work of dissemination and promotion of this Art throughout South America, started in 2008.Participation was important where practitioners from all regions and especially from the capital attended.Also, tests were done for 4th Danes categories that will be future International Instructors.In the seminar the martial spirit stood out, with passion and great dedication in the technical learning, environment achieved by the human warmth manifested by the lecturer GM Javier Dacak twice world champion year 74/78 Canada and USA respectively also organizer of the 3rd Championship World 81 in Argentina.All these events further benefit the development and technical excellence of Chilean practitioners with a view to the next World Championship to be held in April in the city of Inzell Germany.#Chile #Ourpassion #OurFederation #InternationalTaekwondoFederation #wearetaekwondoitf #somostaekwondoitf ...

Andorra, officially the Principality of Andorra (in Catalan, Principat d'Andorra), is a small sovereign country in southwestern Europe.Constituted as an independent State, by right, democratic and social, whose form of government is the parliamentary co-principality.Andorra is located in the Pyrenees, between Spain and France, and limits in the south with the Catalan counties of Cerdanya, Alto Urgel and Pallars Sobirá in Spain, while in the north it does with the departments of Ariège and Pyrenees Orientales (Occitania), in France.This Principality is the largest "microstate" in Europe and has a population close to 79,000 inhabitants.In the first half of 2016, being aware of a chance to incorporate Taekwon-Do within the school activities in that country, I sent an email to the ITF President, GM Pablo Trajtenberg, presenting the bases of the project and the action plan to introduce our Martial Art and thereby by making Andorra a new member of our Federation. From him I obtained an immediate support, as well as from the President of the All European Taekwon-Do Federation, Mr. Tadeusz Loboda.Thus, with the authorizations of both Presidents of the highest Institutions of our Martial Art, I immediately began to work to start spreading the Taekwon-Do within the country's schools throughout our Children Development Program (Kids Program, as it is more commonly known).For this, I must emphasize and at also thanks the effort that put into each training the Boo Sabum Rodrigo García.At the same time, I had innumerable conversations with my guide, GM Hector Marano, to evaluate different alternatives to organize an IIC in that country, as well as with ITF Vice President, GM Paul Weiler, who, based on his extensive experience in Africa and Asia, advised me about some steps to follow like the ones he had been developing.The first step was to form the Andorran Taekwon-Do Association as a legally constituted institution, which was finalized on January 3, 2019.It was almost three years of effort, three years of dreams that came true that day.But as I said above, this was the first step, so in the next Congress to be held in April in Germany during the development of the WC, me as a founding member will present the motion for the new Andorran Taekwon-Do Association to be accepted as a member of our ITF, in the hands of its current President, Mr. Mauro García.Beyond this, we have already start working towards the organization of two events of international hierarchy, an IIC and an IKC in the country we hope will be the new member of the ITF.-----Andorra, oficialmente Principado de Andorra (en catalán, Principat d'Andorra), es un pequeño país soberano del suroeste de Europa. Constituido en Estado independiente, de derecho, democrático y social, cuya forma de gobierno es el coprincipado parlamentario. Andorra está situada en los Pirineos, entre España y Francia, y limita al sur con las comarcas catalanas de Cerdaña, Alto Urgel y Pallars Sobirá, en España, mientras que al norte lo hace con los departamentos de Ariège y Pirineos Orientales (Occitania), en Francia.Este Principado es el “microestado” más grande de Europa y cuenta con una población cercana a los 79.000 habitantes.En la primera mitad de 2016, enterado de que existía la posibilidad de incorporar el Taekwon-Do a las actividades escolares de ese país, envié un correo al Presidente de la ITF, GM Pablo Trajtenberg, presentándole las bases del proyecto y plan de acción para introducir nuestro Arte Marcial y hacer de Andorra un nuevo miembro de nuestra Federación, y de quien obtuve su inmediato apoyo, al igual que del Presidente de la All European Taekwon-Do Federation, el M. Tadeusz Loboda.Así, con las autorizaciones de los Presidentes de dos de las máximas Instituciones de nuestro Arte Marcial, comencé a trabajar inmediatamente para empezar a difundir el Taekwon-Do dentro de las escuelas del país a través de nuestro Programa Para el Desarrollo Infantil (Kids Program, como se lo conoce más comúnmente).Para ello, debo destacar y a la vez agradecer el esfuerzo en cada entrenamiento del Boo Sabum Rodrigo García.Al mismo tiempo, mantuve innumerables conversaciones con mi guía, el GM Héctor Marano, para evaluar distintas alternativas para la organización de un IIC en aquél país, como así también con el Vicepresidente de la ITF, el GM Paul Weiler, quien basado en su amplia experiencia en África y Asia, me aconsejó respecto de algunos pasos a seguir para las gestiones que venía desarrollando.El primer paso fue conformar la Asociación Andorrana de Taekwon-Do como una institución legalmente constituida, lo que se concretó el pasado 3 de enero de 2019.Fueron casi tres años de esfuerzo, tres años de sueños que hoy se hicieron realidad.Pero como dije anteriormente, este fue el primer paso, por lo que en el próximo Congreso a realizarse en Alemania en el mes de abril durante el desarrollo del WC, en mi carácter de miembro fundador presentaré la moción para que la nueva Asociación Andorrana de Taekwon-Do sea aceptada como miembro de nuestra ITF, de la mano de su actual presidente, el Señor Mauro García.No obstante ello, ya comenzamos a trabajar en vistas a la organización de dos eventos de jerarquía internacional, un IIC y un IKC en lo que esperamos, sea el nuevo miembro de la ITF.#Andorra #ITF #Ourpassion #OurFederation #InternationalTaekwondoFederation #wearetaekwondoitf #somostaekwondoitf ...

Open Dutch 2019: An Interview with Master Willy van de MortelITF Netherlands facilitates the Master Series tournaments, to develop competitive ITF Taekwon-Do in The Netherlands. In close cooperation with our member clubs, we realize amazing events like the Open Dutch, organized by Master Willy van de Mortel and his team. Coming January 26th is the next edition. We interviewed Master Willy!This Open Dutch we’re expecting around 750 competitors (around 1350 entries), from 20 countries at minimum: please take us from then to now, how did you get to this point - and why?About 14 years ago I started with the first international tournament, called the “Open Brabant”. Eventually we switched to the more internationally appealing name “Open Dutch”.Along the way we switched locations a couple of times, to be able to handle the growth of the tournament, and to deliver a better service to the athletes, the umpires, the coaches and the supporters.During the years we have gathered a team that really helps us realize the full potential of the tournament with the amazing effort they put into the Open Dutch.My work as a national coach in countries like Slovenia, Italy, The Netherlands, New Zealand - and of course Norway - has certainly contributed to the growing interest in the Open Dutch.But of course giving seminars around the world is an important factor to build relations.What are you looking forward to the most, coming January 26th?The thing I’m looking forward to the most is welcoming many Taekwon-Do friends I have had the honor to work with, and shared so many great experiences with, right here, in Helmond. This is one of the most beautiful aspects of our ITF Taekwon-Do community.Has the Open Dutch come full circle, or is there more in store for us?Whether I have more in store? You know, you are working at such a project for a year and new improvements are already planned for 2020. It is very important to keep listening to the people that grace you with their presence and do something with their feedback. But I promise: there is more where this came from 🙂Visit www.open-dutch.nl for registration and information!#OpenDutch2019 #Ourpassion #OurFederation #InternationalTaekwondoFederation #wearetaekwondoitf #somostaekwondoitf ...

XIXth International Christmas Cup has taken place in Sports Complex Uruchje, Minsk on the 15-16th of December. All clubs of Belarus and other countries took part in this spectacular event. This competition has been taking place for 3 years with involvement of other countries’ guests. This year there were some Latvian clubs, Russian clubs and the club “Berkut” which came from Kazakhstan for the 1st time. The total amount of participants was 670 sportsmen from both Belorussian and international clubs: SC “Berkut”, Kazakhstan, “Velikie Luki”, Russia, "Alexclub", "Chin Goo", "Viktoria-T", "TKD", "Zeta sport", "Tan Gun", Latvia, “BROT”, “BOOT”, “Chu Chhe”, “Litvin”, “Sparta”, “Kaskad” and a new participant from Brest – SC “Katana”.Children, cadets, juniors and adults had been competing in 5 devisions of the competitive programme for two days on 6 rings . Pattern, massoggi, power test and 2 divisions of kids-tkd (speed test and kids-massoggi) elicited the best for each category of each division. 44 certified referees supported the event with Petros Mikaelijan in charge (5th dan rank, Russia, international referee of “A”category). It was a great honor to work with his lead. Such a high level of the event including modern referee equipment generated a new standard in the sphere of organization of competitions in Belarus. It’s a new level in comparison to previous years and it’s certainly going to go up further.In the overall standing SC “Kaskad” won the 1st place, SC “Sparta” – the 2nd, “BROT” - the 3rd.We sincerely thank the organizers, referees, sportsmen, support team, fan base and all those who were involved and cared. For 19 years Christmas Cup has been considering to be a symbol of the expiring year and synonymic to the beginning of the next year for a huge amount of sportsmen. The following year is going to be an anniversary one, the XXth, and we are happy to invite you for this Anniversary Event in 2019.
