The President Column
Dear all ITF family members,

Greeting New Year 2014, I would like to wish all of you, in the name of myself as President of International Taekwon-Do Federation, a Happy New Year hoping only joy and happiness dwell in your family life and every success materializes in all your expectations as tomorrow is today’s dream.

The year 2013 slipped by leaving behind lots of reminiscences for tremendous work that all of us carried out altogether for the promotion of original Taekwon-Do all over the world deeply inspired by last recommendations and wishes of our beloved General Choi Hong Hi, founder of Taekwon-Do, recorded as unprecedented martial art across all ages.

New NGBs were formed in Uganda and in Trinidad Tobago thus making our family larger than ever before.

Many important events took place all year round in different parts of the world to honor real values of Taekwon-Do.

World Taekwon-Do Championship held in Sofia, Bulgaria for its 18th round gained the very summit of ITF activities along with national, regional and continental events engaging all Taekwon-Do practitioners all over the world to the improvement of Taekwon-Do techniques and skills through their brisk dissemination devising friendship and unity among people.

ITF world authority and its external image among other international organizations such as IOC, Sport Accord, WTF and so on have been subsequently improved in compliance with great expectations of all ITF family members and the prospects are very promising.

Though neatly woven, the past last year also witnessed stern and harsh moments not forgettable for the times and will of our commitment.

This hope-marked New Year 2014 will operate many changes in our life. These changes must come for the benefits for all of us.

All ITF events of this year will witness our dreams turning into reality.

As messenger of peace, ITF will cherish all the hopes of its family members.

Let’s put altogether a new mile stone in our annals.

I wish, once again, all of you a Happy New Year and sound health in sound mind.

With best wishes, I remain

Sincerely yours

Prof. Dr. Chang Ung
