Sabum Theresa Stanley – International Ambassador
“I am honoured to be the international ambassador for this event. I strongly believe in the friendship and cooperation and standard or excellent that the ITF HQ promotes. I met Sabum Van Schaik and the Netherlands team in 2015 and loved their spirit and fellowship. I encourage teams from around the world to join us because the event will show case high level of talent and technique as well as fairness and respect for the rules and a strong sense of sportsmanship between competitors. As International Ambassador, I would love to see the story of how you and your teams are prepping for the event. One of the most exciting things in Taekwon-do is the fellowship and community that happens when a team has a common goal. Share the excitement with me and the team here on the organizing committee via social media. Follow me on Instagram and Twitter for updates on this amazing event! Theresa Stanley @tjkicksbutt”
