Instruction of our Taekwon-Do program is governed by the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF). The ITF is an organization founded on March 22, 1966, by General Choi Hong Hi (Korean: 최홍희) in Korea. The ITF was founded to promote and encourage the growth of the Korean martial art of Taekwon-Do. The ITF's main functions include coordinating and approving tournaments and seminars, setting standards for teaching (patterns, sparring, destruction), collaborating with affiliated member organizations (hundreds around the globe), and providing member services in regards to rank and certifications. Choi promoted three men to 9th degree in 1997; Grand Master Rhee Ki Ha promoted July 1997, followed by Grand Master Chuck Sereff and Grand Master KS Hwang in December 1997. World Class Taekwon-Do is a charter school of Unified ITF, President, Grand Master Hwang. Below are the founder and original Grand Masters of ITF.
