For the second consecutive ASOIF governance review, World Taekwondo has scored an A2 rank with an improved score reflecting the progress the federation has made towards its goal of being one of the best governed International Federations.
World Taekwondo was one of the 10 IFs places in the A2 rank, with seven IFs in the highest tier. The rest of the Full and Associate members of ASOIF were ranked between B and C; a new AT rank was created for the Associate members who achieved the target set by ASOIF.
In its assessment report, ASOIF noted that World Taekwondo “has done some important new work, including improving gender balance, strengthening term limits and supporting the governance
of continental and national members.”
World Taekwondo achieved its highest scores in the Transparency and Democracy categories, followed by Development, Integrity, and Control Mechanisms. For the fourth governance review, the biggest improvement was made in the Democracy category.
World Taekwondo President Chungwon Choue noted in his letter to the Council and Member National Associations that “credit for this sustained success is due to the unity and cooperation
of our World Taekwondo family at every level.”
He also noted that every other IF has taken time during the pandemic to improve on their governance. In this regard, President Choue asked for the continued support and dedication if the World Taekwondo family to follow World Taekwondo’s lead to implement new policies for better governance.
“Next year is the 50th founding anniversary of World Taekwondo. I want our beloved sport and federation to achieve the highest possible level of A1 by the next ASOIF governance review.
