June 23rd 2010 was an historical and significant day for the ITF.

As planned, the ITF Delegation headed by President Prof. & Dr. Chang Ung paid a visit to the Sport Accord Headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, and held productive talks with Dr. Hein Verbruggen, the Sport Accord President.

The ITF delegation was composed of President Prof. & Dr. Chang Ung, Vice President Prof. Dr. Dato, GM Leong Wai Meng, Executive Director General Master Ri Yong Son, Treasurer Mr Kim Chol Gyu, EITF President Senior Master Anto Nobilo, ITF EB Member Master Augustus Mitchell, and Senior Master Michael Prewett, ITF Spokesperson.

As 23rd June was the Olympic Day, Sports leaders were working to a very tight schedule due to the organization of the colourful events concerning the Olympics, it was therefore very pleasing to the delegation members that the Sport Accord President, Dr. Hein Verbruggen was waiting to greet us personally in his office and offered a warm welcome to us upon our arrival.

The discussions took place in a friendly atmosphere over a period of 1 hour 40 minutes, during which time a lot of views and perspectives in terms of the Taekwon-Do and Martial-Art activities were exchanged.

Dr. Hein Verbruggen explained in detail the function of Sport Accord and assured the delegation that he would be pleased to support the ITF Taekwon-Do in the future.

Following the ITF President’s introduction of the delegation members to Dr. Hein Verbruggen, every member spoke to him of the Taekwon-Do history and the ITF activities all over the world which he found enlightening.

Finally, the delegation handed the documentary files over to the Sport Accord Secretary, Ms Ricarda Ettlin, who is in charge of this project. She was also presented with a complete set of Taekwon-Do encyclopedias.

On behalf of the International Taekwon-Do Federation and its President, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Dr. Hein Verbruggen, the Sport Accord President, for his kindness and hospitality toward the ITF Delegation.

In conclusion, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to all of our members for their great support to this important issue.

Thank you
