Message from the ITF President for the 89th anniversary of General Choi Hong Hi
Father of Taekwon-Do
Born 1918, Kilju
Died 2002, Pyongyang
General Choi Hong Hi
during the Opening Ceremony
of the 6th World Championship
in Budapest, Hungary 1988.
November 9th is the anniversary of our father General Choi Hong Hi.
If General Choi were still alive, he would have turned 89 years old today.
Life is not everlasting for anyone. We miss his teaching and his presence deeply.
I believe that all the efforts done by the ITF direction team since General Choi’s death are starting to bring good positive results. Our way to operate is aimed to preserve General Choi’s legacy, thus making the ITF an organization working toward world peace. I hope that we will once again have a big and united family in the very near future.
Master Trân Triêu Quân
President of ITF
