Constitution of The International Taekwon-Do Federation
Taekwon-do was founded by General Choi Hong Hi, and is defined as a version of unarmed combat that utilises scientific principles to gain the ultimate use of the body’s ability through intensive physical and mental training to be used for self-defence. Even though it is a martial art, its discipline, technique and mental training are the mortar for building a strong sense of justice, fortitude, humility and resolve.
We are an administrative, co-ordinating and supportive body that aims to serve all worldwide ITF practitioners regardless of religion, race, national/ideological boundaries or organisational affiliations. Our purpose is to preserve the Art, promote it throughout the world and lead the Taekwon-Do movement by adhering to the tenets of Courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit.
Our membership will be drawn from the worldwide community of Taekwon-Do practitioners or like-minded individuals who support the aims of the organisation and the principles of the Art.
We will disseminate the knowledge of Taekwon-Do through our educational programs, publications, media and events particularly through the promotion of Korean history and culture in its homeland.
