“It is a tremendous achievement to reach the highest level in your sport,” said the Chief Instructor and founder of Andre’s Taekwondo Academy, Sabumnim Andre van Tonder. “We salute each and every athlete that has pushed through the barriers to reach this prestigious goal.”

The ATA International, founded in 1969, is the largest organisation in North America dedicated to the discipline of Taekwondo. This year’s World Expo is expected to be attended by about 20 000 visitors from across the globe.

Out of the 10 candidates, four have received full national colours, and six presidential colours.

Pointing out that great success comes with great responsibility, Van Tonder said he was confident that his students would carry their responsibility with great success!
