In the capital city of Athens in Greece, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between World Taekwondo Europe and Kukkiwon. The Signing Ceremony between the two parties took place on Saturday 17 March 2018 by the President of WTE Sakis Pragalos and the President of Kukkiwon Oh HYUNDEUK with one common major goal∙ the promotion and development of Taekwondo sport through mutual collaboration programs including the Taekwondo Poom/Dan Promotions Test, education, training and martial arts competitions.


The President of World Taekwondo Europe Sakis Pragalos commented: “It is the first time that Kukkiwon signs such an MoU in Europe. Through this partnership, all Taekwondo diplomas and certificates will be issued directly in Europe, and the organization of high quality taekwondo events will embrace a common ground for both parties”.


The President of Kukkiwon Oh HYUNDEUK added: “Kukkiwon is the World Taekwondo Headquarters, and WTE has the most of member nations among continental unions. Olympic Taekwondo has been developing only since 2000 Olympics, so Kukkiwon wants to spread out the function of martial arts through “Hanmadang” which could attract the whole of Taekwondo such as self-defense, Jump-kicking, Taekwondo Aerobics and so on. This MoU will contribute in developing the authentic Martial Arts Taekwondo in Europe, and I hope it will be a good opportunity for cooperation between Kukkiwon and WTE.”
