2012 New Year Message from Kukkiwon President Won Sik Kang

Dear Taekwondo Family Members around the world!

The new year full of hope has dawned after the end of an eventful year. 

I would like to thank all the Taekwondo family members who have put forth all their energy into the development of Taekwondo during the past year.

After becoming a special purpose corporation in 2010, Kukkiwon’s priority in 2011 was the stabilization of the organization, and all executives and staff members have put their effort to reach the objective. 

Looking back, 2011 was a hard and chaotic year, but on the other hand, it was a year in which the Kukkiwon understood what had to be changed in order to commit to its role.

2012 will be a difficult year as well.

Nevertheless, we will take this year 2012 to set up the objectives that Kukkiwon needs to reach and to leap forward.  

We believe this is what Kukkiwon, as the world Taekwondo headquarters and the world Taekwondo family’s pivotal figure, has to do to join the Taekwondo family from around the world beyond countries, political views, religion and races. 

?? Won-sik kang President of kukkiwon.

Therefore we ask you to have keen interest and deep affection towards Kukkiwon’s effort.

We wish health and happiness to your families and we hope your wishes are fulfilled in 2012.

2012 Newyear’s morning

President of Kukkiwon
Won Sik Kang
