There are no disciplinary or legal issues for ITF Ethics and Discipline committee to consider at this time.

I would like to thank you formally for your support. Special sincere thanks to  Grand Master Bos, without who’s support this significant step forward in ITF’s International standing would not have been possible.

ITF Doping control Unit was formally commended by PWC (our appointed testing organisation from Germany) for the empathic and professional way the tests were conducted.

The process was in full compliance with international  WADA standards. The attitude and interactions with the athletes selected for testing, coaches, tournament organises and ITF officials were especially mentioned and are a credit to all of us affiliated with ITF.

Yours in Taekwon-Do,
