Welcome on our Website
During the last 39 years, ITF Taekwon-Do has reached a great popularity in Hungary. We hosted different local and international events on a very high level: competitions and seminars, training camps and demonstrations with the participation of many other countries. As the Founder and President of Hungarian Taekwon-do I was very eager to support the plan to host the ITF Taekwon-do World Cup 2016 in Budapest, Hungary.
After the European Championships in 1984, the World Championships in 1988 and the European Cup in 2014, it will be a new challenge for us again to host such a unique international event. I am confident that we will be able to set up an absolutely well organized and memorable competition once again.Through this challenging event we would like to promote our beloved Martial Art: Taekwon-do as well as to make our Organisation of International Taekwon-Do Federation around the East-Central Europe area even more popular.
Budapest is a modern but also traditional capital city, with amazing sights, historical and cultural places, as well as it is known as a capital of thermal baths - a very desirable destination. Our beloved city will provide an outstanding environment to organize the World Cup.
I encourage Grandmasters and Masters, Coaches and Competitors, Officials and Spectators to spend their time in our beautiful and unforgettable country. Hungary with its beauty and hospitality can offer the Taekwon-do Family an excellent opportunity of relaxing and enjoyment before, during and also after the competition, so we would absolutely recommend you to spend more time here.
Budapest is awaiting for you!
Master László Harmat VIII. degree,
President of Hungarian ITF Taekwon-do Federation
