At the gym, in refereeing, in coaching, Taekwondo doesn’t know the sex differences: for all the time before the match, when there are gender divisions and categories, this sport lives without barriers. Basically, an unparalleled example of the olympic sports overview. “We don’t even know which is the reason”, smiles Nicoletta Marinosci, the international WT referee and FITA competition supervisor.
The conference “TaekwonDonna”, hosted at the Olympic preparatory center of Coni, is born from an idea of the President Angelo Cito who really wanted it. In just two days it has been done a journey into the Taekwondo’s roots and it has been understood, with the rapporteurs’ help, for what reasons in the italian and in the World Taekwondo there aren’t role’s differences between girls and boys.
Everything takes shape at the gym. Where we are all the same. And where you can learn the Taekwondo principles since childhood: kindness; integrity; perseverance and self-control. Values which belong to the feminine universe without any generalization.
The President Cito, with his idea has wanted underline that women bring something more. For this reason thanks to this experience, We try to send a message for all the sports: as it happens here, It is possible to work and collaborate together, men and women at the same level, without any difference. We are aware that It isn’t so. The Sport needs women’s and men’s experiences to grow. TaekwonDonna It has been a journey, a research across testimony and so many aspects of sports activities: from nutrition to medicine and physical preparation.
We’ve got so many guests as well, like The President of the Italian Olimpic Committee Giovanni Malagò and the great olympic women athletes Alessandra Sensini and Diana Bianchedi who are now managers.
