The ITF Hall of Fame Australasia was created to celebrate the great achievements and contributions of ITF members throughout the Pacific and Asian regions.
Following the outstanding success of the inaugural 2017 event, the ITF Hall Of Fame Australasia will become a featured annual event on the ITF calendar across the Australasian region.
With many fine Taekwon-Do practitioners, regional pioneers and high performers, the Australasian region has become one of the strong holds of the International Taekwon-Do Federation and now earns and deserves the respect it receives globally due to the efforts of these early pioneers.
