The annual General Assembly of the Ghana Taekwondo Federation (GTF) is underway at the Korea Sports Complex at Tema in the Greater Accra Region.

The General Assembly is expected to follow the seniors category of the three-day 11th Korean Ambassador's Taekwondo Championship at the same venue.

With all the best athletes set to compete in a championship which focuses on developing Taekwondo in the regions, the GTF is keen on using the competition as a means of deliberating and taking decisions aimed at growing and developing the combat sport. 

The gathering will discuss among many, registration and annual dues for individual members, clubs and MRA's, development plans & reports for MRA's, as well as take a look at activities for next year.

In an interview with the Graphic Sports Online, Frederick Lartey Out, the President of the GTF, laid emphasis on the need for the General Assembly in order to give fair hearing to all stakeholders of the sport.

"We saw the need to have this General Assembly because this year, all MRA's are coming. It is very important that we take certain decisions that will help us move forward in developing the sport.

“We are thankful to the Embassy of the Republic of Korea for sponsoring the competition and we are looking forward to having a successful General Assembly,” he said.
