“It is an honor for me, as a former national coach of the Netherlands, to become Ambassador for the Open W.C. 2017. This, because I can make a contribution and to everyone who already know this fantastic and especially dynamic sport, but especially also to correct those that are not yet familiar with our open mentality of Taekwon-do and its Tenets. I see on my way as national Ambassador go, so many doors open to a collaboration with organizations, associations and schools no matter what Taekwon-do style. The O.W.C. 2017 to Barneveld stands for friendship, sportsmanship and brotherhood”
