It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Grand Master Eui-Min KO. Mr. Ko was a former World Taekwondo Technical Delegate at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, and Chair of the Technical Committee.

Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. Grand Master Eui-Min KO has passionately worked to develop Taekwondo around the world. For more than fifty years, he was the mentor of many young people in his entourage. At Swiss Taekwondo, many of us have passed their Dan with him, worked with him, refereed matches with him, sat on many committees and met him during his many visits to Switzrelnd. We will not forget what we learned from him, the numerous supports, and above all, his invaluable friendship. May you rest in peace Grand Master KO.

Dr. Jean-Marie Ayer (President), Executive Board Members, Board Members and all members of Swiss Taekwondo.
