Taekwondo supporters from Venezuela, who suffer from the diaspora, demand that an official category be created for migrants, displaced and refugees persons.

"Warrior Hearts of Taekwondo, by Venezuelan Taekwondo Refugees."

With the initiative of the Corazones Olímpicos del Sur Foundation, called "Warrior Hearts of Taekwondo, by Venezuelan Taekwondo Refugees", we took on the task of approaching different Venezuelan athletes and they have been contacting us with their life stories from the Venezuelan Diaspora, and On many occasions his experiences touched our hearts. Very complex situations but that face with the warrior soul that have forged with the practice of this discipline.

As far as we could investigate, the phenomenon of migrants from Venezuela will increase drastically, and according to David Smolansky, who is in charge of the -OEA- to deal with the issues of Venezuelan migrants, the figure in 2018 is about 3.4 million trips, for 2019 it is expected that the figure surpasses 5 million.

The migratory movement becomes a challenge for the countries of the region, said the director of research in Latin America of Amnesty International, Carolina Jiménez Sandoval for TNT 24.

The coordinating platform for refugees and emigrants from Venezuela provides a generous information base in this regard, which highlights the figure of 375,012 refugee status requests between 2014 and 2018, in addition to the 958,965 residences granted.

In the middle of the complex panorama we find the foundation Corazones Olímpicos del Sur, which is led by a group of Venezuelan taekwondo players with a remarkable sporting experience, who after seeing what they and their compatriots were suffering from in the outside, they agreed to join forces. This is how the foundation was born.

Leverage from taekwondo processes of social integration, generation of humanitarian aid channels and strengthening the social fabric of immigrants. Robert Mujica

According to the director of the foundation, Mr. Robert Mujica, the foundation seeks to contribute basically in aspects such as: social integration, the generation of humanitarian aid channels, strengthening the social fabric of immigrants, but everything from taekwondo.

We want the generation of training spaces and official competence for the refugees of Venezuela.

Robert Mujica also let us know that there are many high performance competitors and groups in training that have a promising projection, and it is a pity that they can not continue growing in sports, and precisely, this situation has led them to promote the idea of the creation of training spaces and official competence for the refugees of Venezuela.

Among the proposals and projects of the Corazones Olímpicos del Sur foundation are:

  1. The generation of a category that competes, local and international, of Venezuelan refugee taekwondo.
  2. The structuring of taekwondo training programs with a focus on resilience and social integration.
  3. Construction of a mutual support network.

The foundation Corazones Olímpicos del Sur is the result of the work of taekwondo teacher Robert Mujica, his two sons and teacher Esteban Joao Roldán, who have stated that a positive response has been received from the community regarding the foundation and the proposed projects.

"Taekwondo is alive and well in The Gambia and making huge strides. In spite of enormous challenges, Taekwondo is growing, with increasing number of clubs and practitioners."

Taekwondo in Gambia

Taekwondo was introduced in The Gambia in the 1980s and The Gambia Taekwondo Association is said to be the oldest Martial Arts Association/Federation in the country. It is endowed with a Constitution, approved in 12 August 2017, ushering in a new Executive Committee. There are currently fifteen registered Taekwondo Clubs, with varying degrees of activity. Most of these clubs are concentrated in the Kombo area, with only one know club based in Farafeni. Most instructors are holders of Black Belt certified by Kukkiwon, with only one exception.

Changing the taekwondo´s image in Gambia

The image of Taekwondo, along with other Martial Arts, is generally negative, with limited visibility. It is generally perceived as a tool used by trouble makers to engage in violent behavior and score settling. This is because the limited familiarity with Martial Arts come from Kung-Fu movies, which are popular especially among the youth. However, this image is changing slowly but steadily thanks to the organization of visible activities such as demonstrations and public promotion tests with media presence. Aided by growing experience and dynamism of the Gambia Taekwondo Association, the planned organization of tournaments, including national championships, is expected to induce a radical change for the better in the image and reputation of Taekwondo.

The Gambia Taekwondo Association as rocked by a severe crisis resulting from unconstitutional actions by some members of the Executive Committee. The crisis lasted several months during which the Executive Committee was rendered ineffective, practically dysfunctional. An important meeting was convened by The National Sports Council on xxx. All Taekwondo Clubs attended this meeting, which served as a watershed for future development of Taekwondo in The Gambia. While some confusion remains, both The Gambia Taekwondo Association and the individual Taekwondo Clubs are reinvigorated, reenergized with a renewed commitment and determination to work together in favour of Taekwondo in The Gambia. The passion for Taekwondo is very powerful.

The Gambia Taekwondo and its Plan of Action 2019 – 2021

The Gambia Taekwondo Association has formulated a comprehensive Plan of Action for the period 2019 – 2021. This provides a clear direction, with specific activates to be implemented to take Gambian Taekwondo to a higher plateau. The Plan of Action was shared with Taekwondo Clubs for their analysis and approval. It is now being implemented, with contributions by different clubs. Future annual reports will be based on the progress on the implementation of this Plan of Action.
