Taekwon-Do has been created for everybody regardless of political, racial, national and religious boundaries. The founder, General Choi Hong Hi has always emphasized the indigenous community and appreciated the involvement of indigenous people in the art of Taekwon-Do. There were many examples demonstrating this, whether General Choi was meeting leaders of indigenous communities or his selection of some indigenous practitioners for his prestigious Taekwon-Do “Legacy” CD-ROM project.
ITF HQ Korea has been striving to continue work with the Indigenous community and introduce and promote Taekwon-Do amongst them. Recently we have initiated collaboration and provided support and recognition for the Mississaugas, the New Credit First Nation, that is the host of the First Nation I Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan AM Games.
We look forward to our fruitful collaboration and the introduction of Taekwon-Do as part of this prestigious event.
