Kitakyushu City officials and the Taekwondo Association of Thailand signed an agreement in Bangkok on May 8. The news comes after it was revealed that a similar arrangement was reached with the Thai Olympic table tennis team. Specific details concerning training times and facilities will be revealed at a later date. Source: NHK News, 5/9/2018
