Closer collaboration with Kukkiwon will allow us to enhance the quality of education in Taekwondo, provide greater support to our athletes, and promote a more unified and collaborative environment among the institutions.”

The new office will serve as a hub for coordinating educational programs and joint projects between the Pan American Taekwondo Union and Kukkiwon, aiming to elevate the standard of Taekwondo in the region.

The agreement addresses not only sports-related aspects but also emphasizes the importance of promoting values such as discipline, respect, and integrity among Pan-American Taekwondo practitioners.
