"Dearest Trine, your children and family I would like to express my condolences and sympathy to you and your children about the unfortunate happening and dead of Master Christian Isaksen. I knew Master Christian Isaksen personally in many years. I met Master Christian Isaksen first time in 1984 in Sisimiut during National Championship and travelled with Master Christian Isaksen many times as a teammate in National Team, and thereafter as President of GTF. I met Master Christian Isaksen last time in 2019 under 40 years anniversary of Greenland Taekwon-do Federation. I have last couple days reflected many happy memories of Master Christian Isaksen. Master Christian Isaksen was one of the most respected athlete and always been an inspiration for his honestly, kindness and willing to develop Taekwon-do equally for his surroundings with Taekwon-do spirit. He was hard working and spent many days and hours to help and trained his children and nearest family so there can participated in several events. Master Christian Isaksen has many years participated national championships and won many medals. He was also participated international level events in Europa and World as a veteran competitor. With great understanding of Taekwon-do spirit, he shows through purposefulness and stubbornness can achieve great things. Master Christian Isaksen was one of the best and endurance students of Grandmaster Leong Wai Meng. On behalf of many athletes and Greenlandic Taekwon-do Federation, I will give you my deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May God give you the peace that you seek. May memory of Master Christian Isaksen be honour. "

"Dear Mrs. Trine Isaksen and family, It is with deep respect and great sorrows that I, on behalf of all my Taekwon-do students in Greenland, convey our deepest condolences to you and your family on the passing of your beloved husband Master Christian Isaksen. Master Christian was one of my early students in Greenland. I started teaching him when he was a student. He was one of the best Greenland could produce. Master Christian and I had a very close relationship as teacher and student and we had traveled around the world together many times. He was one of the first Greenlanders to win in the Taekwon-do world championships with many gold, silver and bronze medals throughout in the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s. Master Christian had a wonderful friendly and kind and jovial personality. He was loved and liked by all wherever he was. Greenland is very proud of him. Master Christian Isaksen is a Taekwon-do hero and a national hero who has earned good name for his country Greenland. I and all Taekwon-do members are very proud of him. Master Christian Isaksen will be greatly missed by all of us. We hope you and your children will overcome your grieve soon and be back to your normal lives again and always having Master Christian in your heart and your mind. May he rest in eternal peace with our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven. Thank you."
