With deep sorrow and regret we would like to inform the Taekwon-Do community worldwide that Master Gennady Han, 8th Degree, the President of the International Taekwon-Do Federation Uzbekistan, passed away today, on August 6, 2020.
Master Han has created Taekwon-Do history in Uzbekistan and in the world.
