The Pope Francis is a Taekwondo 10th Dan now ;)

On May 10, WTF President Chungwon Choue, accompanied by President of the Italian Taekwondo Federation Angelo Cito, was received by Pope Francis in the Saint Peter’s Square in Vatican City. With them were Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the Holy See Jong-hyu Jeong and Honorary President of the Italian Taekwondo Federation Young-gil Park.


After a fraternal greeting, Choue awarded the Pope an honorary 10th dan black belt – the highest rank in taekwondo.
