What is important to you?

Is it your home, your friends, your family, your skateboard or snowboard, your Lego collection, your Taekwon-Do-Do school or even your Jonas Brothers’ fan club membership? Some of these things are activities and some are your community. A community gives you friendship, support and guidance.

There are many types of communities: a community centre, community health, your neighborhood, your facebook friends even the ITF is a community. When we are members of a community we can help it get better or let others do everything. Which do you think is the right thing? How do you help out in your home and in your communities?

Did You Know???
• The International Taekwon-Do Federation was created in 1966 by General Choi Hong Hi-It started with just 9 countries: Malaysia, Vietnam, Korea, West Germany, USA, Egypt, Turkey, Singapore, and Italy. Today there are over 500,000 members in 81 countries affiliated with the ITF.
• The ITF crest colours are yellow and blue: The colour yellow signifies earth from which a plant sprouts and takes root while blue signifies the heaven toward which the plant matures into a towering tree.
• At the 2008 ITF World Cup in Riva del Guarda, Italy there were 1131 participants competing over a 4 day event. (At the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada there were 2725 participants competing over a 17 day event)

Special Feature:
6yr old Mary Kramer from New Zealand was on holiday last year when she heard about the Tsunami in Samoa on the news. When school resumed the following week, Mary had drawn pictures on 28 envelopes along with a message asking for help for those people whose houses had been washed away. Mary left an envelope and gave a speech in all 28 classes in her school. She collected more than $1000 in donations. Even though she is only little, Mary made a big difference to the Samoan people who lost everything.
