As we end 2018 and look forward to the incredible opportunities that 2019 offers, the World ITF Taekwon-Do Council would like to thank every member for their support.
Grand Master Peter Harkess formed the new World ITF Taekwon-Do Council in 2018 which now has members in 16 countries including Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Ecuador, England, India, Iran, Madagascar, Mexico, Nepal, Northern Ireland, Philippines, Scotland, Spain, Venezuela and Wales. Many other countries continue to enquire about membership, so we expect another fantastic year ahead.
Since our formation, we now have a newly promoted Grand Master and 2 newly promoted Masters – Grand Master Derek Campbell, Master David Clark and Master Walter Livingston from Scotland.
We will host our European ITF Taekwon-Do Championships in Scotland from 1st to 3rd November 2019.
Grand Master Harkess will conduct a number of International Technical Seminars throughout the World in 2019, including Mexico City in May 2019. Our WITC members are invited to participate in the seminar as well as compete in Mexico at the Mexican Cup. Invites to compete in competitions in many other countries including Australia and Canada have been received.
Members are invited to forward their planned activities if they wish to invite other WITC members to participate.
In closing, 2018 has been a wonderful beginning. We expect 2019 to be even better.
Thank you all for 2018 and we wish everyone a very Happy New Year and all the very best of health and good fortune in 2019.
