This thesis is based on my work and experiences of developing ITF Taekwon-Do in Africa 2012-18.

At this time I was in preparation for my grading to 6th degree, so it was a natural thought for me to continue to train during my time in Uganda.This thesis is based on my work and experiences of developing ITF Taekwon-Do in Africa 2012-18.

Therefore, the ITF should educate its instructors financially – in budgeting, debt management, wealth protection, accumulation and decumulation.

Technological change is accelerating. Many technologies are converging and intersecting, resulting in innovations that seem like magic. Electric cars are on their way to mainstream status. Artificial intelligence is everywhere, in our pockets and driving our cars. Yet amongst all this growth, the world wrestles with a significant global health pandemic and the economic and societal aftershock. It’s not business as usual.

My hypotheses is “Does the moral guidance which is the backbone of
Taekwon do fill the space left as a result of the decline in participation in Christian religions?”
