Statement regarding the effects of Russian invasion of Ukraine on International ITF Taekwon-Do activities
The Board of Directors of ITF Scotland stands with Ukraine. We wholeheartedly condemn the actions of the Russian military in their aggressive invasion of Ukraine, an independent and sovereign country.
ITF Scotland appeals to the International Taekwon-Do Federation as well as All Europe Taekwon-Do Federation to acknowledge the situation, to take clear and defined action and measures as recommended by the IOC (IOC Statement 28/02/2022) to suspend the Russian Federation from all sporting events in the immediate and near future.
We’d like to take the opportunity as 2021 draws to a close to wish all ITF Scotland’s members & families as well as the wider Taekwon-Do community a very Merry Christmas and Happy & Prosperous New Year 2022.
We look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
As we begin to see Taekwon-Do events re-starting across Europe, we also begin our preparations for our own national championships in 2022.
The date for this has been re-scheduled due to the ongoing vaccination centre used within Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility. Therefore our National Championships will now be held on Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd May 2022.
More information and invitation will follow in due course.
