Following the court’s decision finding former Taekwondo coach Shin Wook Lim guilty of sex-related offenses, Taekwondo Ontario in alignment with Taekwondo Canada, reiterates our explicit condemnation of abuse and maltreatment of any kind.

Taekwondo Ontario, as the official provincial sports organization governing the sport and martial art of Taekwondo in Ontario, is committed to ensuring that the membership including athletes, staff, coaches and volunteers participate, train and grow in a healthy, nurturing and safe sports environment.

Taekwondo Ontario will continue to work with key stakeholders to educate our athletes, coaches, and parents, amongst others, and to enact pragmatic policies and procedures aimed at rooting out abuse and preventing it in all its forms.
