Taekwondo problem linked to North and South Korea !

The Youth and Sports Ministry is confident problems resulting from the suspension of the Malaysian Taekwondo Association (MTA) can be resolved soon following the acceptance of the states and clubs towards the setting up of Taekwando Malaysia (TM), the Dewan Rakyat was told Wednesday.

Its Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek said TM, which was chaired by Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) president Tan Sri Tunku Imran Tuanku Jaafar, had received wide acceptance in overcoming the problems as a result of MTA's suspension since 2005.

"This problem is also linked to North and South Korea after two separate entities governing the sport arose," he said when winding up debate on the motion of thanks for the Royal address for his ministry.

He said this in responding to a call by Datuk Mohd Jidin Shafee (BN-Setiu) who wanted the Sports Commissioner to retract the suspension of MTA as it was affecting development of taekwondo in the country.

  1. What Taekwando problem linked to North South Korea problem? I do not know who informed the Minister about this, it has nothing to do with that. The IF for taekwando is the world Taekwando Federation (WTF) there are recognised by the IOC.
    Now TM(WTF)is the NSA recognised by the WTF in Malaysia. There is no problems at all. This chap from Setiu does not know what he is talking about, just ignore him. As for MTA , their goose is as good as cooked, they either swim or sink with TM, if they want to be independent and practise their brand yo taekwando, they are free to do so. and be classied as Sukan Bebas.
    Their right to sports is a human right and they can go on as long as they are human. Their chaps have nno place to go to the SEA or Olympic family Games.
