ITF is the International Taekwon-Do Federation, founded on March 22, 1966 in Seoul (south) Korea, by General Choi Hong Hi, who developed Taekwon-Do, to promote the teaching of this martial art.

At that time, nine countries were involved: Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, West Germany, USA, Turkey, Italy, and Egypt. Taekwon-Do is now taught in almost every country in the world, and General Choi is recognized as the Father of Taekwon-Do.

The International Taekwon-Do Federation is legally registered in Spain and has its headquarters in Benidorm.





The mission of the ITF is to represent, promote, and work for the development of the practice of Taekwon-Do in all countries by:

  • Coordinating and certifying Taekwon-Do activities such as competitions and seminars;
  • Setting and enforcing high quality standards for technical and teaching;
  • Identifying and collaborating with affiliated organizations, such as Continental Federations, National Associations, and Allied National Associations, providing assistance to local Taekwon-Do organizations; and
  • Certification for Black Belt holders, international instructors and umpires.


Practitioners of Taekwon-Do (TKD) recognize that they are forever students of our Founder, General Choi Hong Hi. The ITF and its affiliated organizations will strengthen and promote the legacy of General Choi as described in his Encyclopedia of Taekwon-Do, notably the twenty-four patterns and the philosophy.

The ITF belongs to all its members; it must work for its members and with its members to provide the services they need and want.

The ITF and its affiliated organizations are always open to suggestions from members and encourage innovative ideas.

The ITF and its affiliated organizations are and must remain free of all political influence.

All qualifications and promotions within the ITF and its affiliated organizations will be attributed according to merit and in conformity with well-established criteria.

The respect of hierarchy authority is an important principle in all martial arts. All members of ITF will respect those who are their seniors in the organization, particularly their teacher. On the other hand, the seniors will treat their students and other juniors with respect and fairness.

Australian Taekwon-Do AllianceThe Australian Taekwon-Do Alliance (which we refer to as ‘the Alliance’) is a national umbrella organisation for Taekwon-Do organizations. Any Australian Taekwon-Do group, school or club can join in order to receive the benefits and advantages of a large, supportive organisation without loss of their individual identity.




Vision and Goals

We founded the Alliance to support Australian Taekwon-Do organisations in their daily activities. This includes a broad base of support for events, enhanced opportunities for elite athletes and organisational support for marketing.  By providing a national body it enables access to funding opportunities that may otherwise not be available to local organisations.

The Alliance enables all of this for member organisations and their students without requiring internal organisational or management change. The Alliance provides a national Taekwon-Do organisation that delivers administrative and policy stability to the ITF membership in Australia.

It is about students, not power bases.
