As ITF President GM Paul Weiler recently addressed the members of ITF organization, the year 2020 marks a special anniversary in the history of the ITF. On April 11, 1955, General Choi, Hong-Hi introduced “his” Taekwon-Do to the public. 65 years ago he made the first step to spread Taekwon-Do worldwide. This was the basis for what International Taekwon-Do Federation represents today. Therefore the President’s appeal was to put the year 2020 under the following motto:
“Taekwon-Do Celebration Year”
What better way to celebrate it than ITF World Cup. In Koper (Slovenia) we will therefore have a great opportunity to remember General Choi life’s work and preserve his legacy throughout the event.
