World Taekwondo and United World Wrestling together in great cause

United World Wrestling (UWW), World Taekwondo (WT), and the Taekwondo Humanitarian Foundation (THF) hosted the first-ever joint Olympic-sport training event, named Aspire 2gether for Peace, in the Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan.

The event was a product of the landmark Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between UWW, WT, and THF last October to promote humanitarian, peace, and social development through sport.

The joint-event goal was to deliver free wrestling and taekwondo training sessions to refugees at the existing Humanitarian Taekwondo Center.

All three organizations were represented by their most important men and women – WT President and  THF Chairman Chungwon Choue, Olympic gold medallists and THF/WT Ambassadors, Wu Jingyu and Ahmed Abu Ghaush; UWW Development Director Deqa Niamkey and Olympic medallists and UWW Ambassadors, Arsen Julfalakyan and Clarissa Chun.
