Grandmaster Pablo Trajtenberg became acting President of the ITF following the tragic passing of Grandmaster Trân Triêu Quân in 2010. He was subsequently elected as ITF President at the ITF Congress in New Zealand in 2011 and was re-elected for a 2nd term at the 2015 ITF Congress in Jesolo, Italy. Prior to this GM Trajtenberg served as a board member of the ITF since 2003, holding the position of Senior Vice President prior to his election to the role of President. He also served as a member of the ITF Technical Committee along with Grandmaster Marano and Grandmaster Bos, visiting all continents to teach and standardise the techniques of ITF Taekwon-Do and placing an emphasis on the teaching of the ‘Do’ to carry on the mission of his predecessor GM Trân. During his tenure as President of the ITF our federation enjoyed a period of rapid growth across all continents. GM Trajtenberg worked closely with the ITF Board and committees during his two terms to ensure the ITF focused on offering a greater number of services and courses to our members and instructors, helping to introduce new programmes such as the ITF Kids programme and the ITF Harmony Programme for training older adults. GM Trajtenberg placed a focus on helping to professionalise the teaching of ITF Taekwon-Do and was passionate about enabling our instructors to earn a livelihood from teaching our wonderful martial art.
