Really good news for Taekwondo in Malaysia. Hopefully the transition would be smooth and my children can start with their training soon and organizers can start planning for championships.

Taekwondo: Protem committee takes charge


TAEKWONDO Malaysia has formed a protem committee to undertake the activities of the sport in the country pending an election of office bearers.The new national body was formed under a directive from Sports Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek to unite the fragmented Malaysian taekwondo community under a single umbrella.

Olympic Council of Malaysia OCM president Tunku Imran Tuanku Jaafar is chairing the committee with OCM vice president Datuk Roy Rajasingham as his deputy.Others appointed to the committee are Datuk Samson David Maman secretary, K. M. Rajendran treasurer, Song Yoong Khin technical chairman and committee members Datuk Mohamad Nazim Abdul Razak, Chee Hock Choong, Leow Cheng Koon and Chin Mee Keong.Samson said in a statement the tenure of the protem committee has been fixed for 12 months during which the inaugural annual general meeting will be held to elect office bearers and adopt a constitution.

Besides state associations and clubs, the Armed Forces and Malaysian Universities Sports Council have been invited to join as affiliates after the Sports Commissioners Office agreed to exempt the two bodies from registering with the office.

The Malaysian Taekwondo Clubs Association and Malaysian Taekwondo Federation have also agreed to disband as national bodies on Mar 4 and Mar 19 respectively in support of Taekwondo Malaysia.Giving away 8,888 Free Cards!
