Consul General Raly Tejada inducted into office on Sept. 15 the newly appointed officers of the United Philippine Taekwondo Organization – Hong Kong, a pioneering group dedicated to promoting the sport among Filipinos, particularly migrant workers.

Taking their oath before Congen Tejada in the conference room of the Consulate were founders Federico C. Jacinto, Ednaly Padua and Mercy D. Permales; head instructor Wilma M. Bolobong, asst head instructor Ruth V. Delos Santos, instructors Ednalyn Padua, Artisa C. Nablo and Margie F. Nava (Tung Chung branch), and Rey N. Aldea, Precy E. Tamot and Federico C. Jacinto (Sheung Wan branch), secretary and treasurer Mary Ann P. Manongdo, and business manager Letecia D. Cayudong
Upto was founded on June 22, 2014 by blackbelts Jacinto, Padua, Permales and Evangeline Sia Gocuay, who has since left Hong Kong for good. Since then, the three remaining founders have worked their way up the ranking ladder, with all three now holders of a 3rd Dan Black Belt, and members of the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF).
Over the past seven years, the group has produced 24 WTF black belts, and most of them are Upto members. But since the organization has grown slowly, the founders decided to lessen the number of officers and give all active Black Belt members the chance to focus and become future instructors of Upto.

Winning UPTO members display the medals they won in the contest

The ploy appeared to have worked because straight from the oath-taking 11 Upto members won medals in the 17th Hong Kong Nepalese Taekwondo Association Open Kyorugy and Poomsae Championship 2019, held at the Kowloon Park Sports Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui.

The winners were part of a 20-strong delegation from Upto that competed in nine different belt categories in the poomsae competition. More than 10 organizations and clubs participated in the event.

The winners from Upto are:
