Established in 1983 to promote the advancement of the unadulterated Taekwon-Do of General Choi Hong Hi IXth Dan (Founder). Founded by Master Trevor Nicholls, (At the time fourth Degree Black Belt) he was already an Instructor of high repute within the U.K.T.A. the British Association for the International TaeKwon-Do Federation (I.T.F.), Master Nicholls, because of the negative side to politics ever present within Taekwon-Do, and the complexities of bureaucracy and its inevitable financial implications and antagonism among Instructors, decided to sacrifice his own material needs and not pursue his own career in order to dedicate and devote himself entirely to the I.T.A. At this time there was only one School being Rayners Lane of approximately 50 students.
UK ITF™ has grown exponentially over the years to become one of the leading Taekwon-Do groups in the UK. We offer a united front for the ITF, not interested in the petty political bickering seen amongst other groups we are proud to be affiliated under our President GM Choi Jung Hwa IX.
Here to provide unmatched Taekwon-Do resources and support from its Senior Members we have supplied pathways for our elite athletes to attend premier events such as, the 2004 World Championships held for the first time in South Korea collating results never before attained by a UK contingent. The 2006 Junior World Championships in Australia saw UK TEAM return as Overall Champions of the world. Achievements such as this are due to the forward thinking attitude of our group and its sponsorship of all our competitors.
Hosting the 2007 ITF World Championships (NIA, Birmingham) we proved our professionalism and our dedication to forwarding Taekwon-Do technology in assisting competitor performance. We showcased the new ITF approved Entry and Scoring System which will now be implemented World Wide, the Staggering Laser show used for the opening ceremony and the Medal Presentation software.
We are constantly working to ensure our members are receiving the best possible tuition from our Instructors, and remain dedicated to continual growth and support through learning and training together in the art of Taekwon-Do.
