ITF Taekwon-Do

This Korean martial art, International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) Taekwon-Do, was developed by a Korean military general, General Choi Hung Hi in 1955. It was created based on scientific principles.

The History of Taekwon-do

The Founder of Taekwon-do, a Korean military general - General Choi Hung Hi, developed Taekwon-do in 1995. Having learned karate in his early career, General Choi’s dream was to create Korea’s own distinct martial art, one that was superior in both spirit and technique to other martial arts. General Choi developed his marital art based on scientific principles, and, against strong opposition, Taekwon-do was adopted by into the military curriculum as a compulsory course. Since then, due to General Choi’s strong perseverance, Taekwon-do became  Korea’s National Martial Art and has since spread around the world, gaining notoriety. It now holds a place as an Olympic event.

As Taekwon-do spread throughout the world, it generated schools of different styles. International Taekwon-do Federation (ITF) Taekwon-do, founded in 1955 by General Choi, remains true to the original form and spirit of the Founder.

What is Taekwon-do?

Taekwon-do is an art of unarmed combat, developed for the purpose of self-defence. It incorporates kicking and punching using scientific principles to generate power and speed.

“Tae” - means jumping or flying, to kick or smash with the foot

“Kwon” - means to punch or destroy with the hand or fist

“Do” - means an art or way - the right way built and paved by the saints and sages in the past.

More than just punching or kicking, the Taekwon-do’s discipline focuses on developing the mind and spirit; training its practitioners to: have courtesy for others; proceed with integrity and high moral standards; persevere in the face of adversity; have the self-control to avoid unnecessary conflict; and be able to give unswerving loyalty to those deserving of it.
