The new TaeKwon-Do Body

ITF UNION Established on 11th April 2015 by a group of Masters and Grandmasters that wanted to remain committed to General Choi’s teachings, the ITF Union is an international body set up to assist instructors and organisations with all their needs. It provides, black belt certification, world class seminars and courses as well as international, regional and World championships. Taekwon-Do has been practiced around the world since 1955 and is now in more then 100 countries. Join our rapidly growing family now and experience the benefits first hand.

What is the ITF Union?

The union was created with the following goals:

1. Follow the teachings of General Choi from a technical and “moral culture” standpoint.

2. Maintain high technical standards and help promote a better understanding of General Choi’s Taekwon-Do by conducting high quality seminars and courses under the auspicious of World famous Masters and Grandmasters.

3. Organise regional and World championships that create a sense of brotherhood. We are one family!

4. Our vision is one of non interference in the national affairs of our members. We do however adhere to strict timeline in terms of Dan/Degree promotions.

The Executives

Every member of the ITF UNION Executive has been promoted to 9th Degree Grandmaster by one of the Korean pioneers of ITF Taekwon-Do. This is a very important trait in our family. We are proud of our lineage and our history. Our Promotion Committee strictly adheres to following the timeline between ranks as laid out by General Choi.

International Events

United we stand. The ITF UNION offers National, International, European, Panamerican, Asian, African and World championships. Our events are open to all Taekwon-Do practitioners world wide. We are one family.

Senior Degree Test

Our International Instructors / Examiners host senior degree test throughout the year in every country. Our Masters are graded accordingly by our 8th and 9th Degree Examiners.

IIC’s

International Instructor Courses are hosted by our Grand Masters in various countries across the year. Like all events hosted by our membership we welcome every ITF group as our open door policy is dedicated to the founders last wish.

We are a non profit making International ITF body, therefore there are no joining fees. We have seen many NEW ITF groups appear since the founders’ passing and seen the same policy used on most. ITF Union is about freedom and choice, therefore there is no joining fee as we are about putting TaeKwondo back together and not creating more divides.

  • We have many groups in all countries that are working together and forming one body, but also in many countries there are independents who operate alone. However, if you choose to be independent (i.e. a direct member) you will not lose any benefits as this is our policy.
  • You can still take part in events being hosted by the main groups and just network with them. ITF Union is about freedom, so we will not tie you down.
  • ITF Union is about freedom. As an example, our members based in the U.K and other countries host many Open events over the year, attracting many practitioners. This also includes practitioners from outside of ITF Union.
  • ITF Union encourage its members to organize events helping to unite the Taekwon-Do practitioners from any ITF body.
  • ITF Union Executive Board organizes World events like World Championships and World Cups by having agreements with organizers willing to host such a Championship.
