It is with deepest sadness that we, at the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF), bring you of the sorrowful news of the untimely passing of Kevin Tan Tian Teck, a fourth dan taekwondo instructor, on 16 October 2017.  He was 48 years old and left behind a wife and 3 young children.

Kevin Tan was an active taekwondo exponent who was part of the national demonstration team in the 80s.  He went on to assist in the organizing of promotion tests under the purview of the STF from 1999 to 2005.  Having taekwondo at heart, he also contributed to the development of the sport through his involvement in refereeing and instructing.

Many in the taekwondo community who knew him would miss his perennial smiles and friendship.
