The European Taekwondo family and the Hellenic Taekwondo Federation bow their heads in grief and sorrow at the untimely passing of Stavros Proios.


Stavros Proios entered the taekwondo family from the early childhood. He had been a co-athlete with the current Deutsche Taekwondo Union President Stefan Klawiter and under the coaching of master Seo Yoon Nam, Stavros equally mastered the art of Taekwondo by holding in total 8 Dan.


Stavros continued his career in coaching, while he was also an International Referee. He serviced for several years as Vice-President of the Hellenic Taekwondo Federation and he was also the official coach of the Athletic Association of Sports & Education in Kastoria, Greece.


Stavros had trained many outstanding athletes and he had passed the flame and passion of Taekwondo to even more. His conquering personality and character will forever remain in his friends and students.


ETU wishes its deepest condolences to his family. The ETU President, ETU Secretary-General and ETU Genaral Director also express their condolences to the Hellenic Taekwondo Federation.
