I on behalf of the International Taekwon-Do Federation(ITF) would like to extend my heartfelt thanks and congratulations to all the Taekwon-Doists the world over who have been devoting themselves to the worldwide development and evolution of the original Taekwon-Do, the legacy of the late Gen. Choi Hong Hi, the Legendary Founder of Taekwon-Do and 1st ITF President.
Taekwon-do is a form of oriental martial art composed of diverse offensive and defensive movements, in which one’s hand and foot, are used as weapons. It employs both graceful movements, powerful and quick techniques at once, thus is helpful for the balanced development of physical ability. The practice of Taekwon-do also has the effect of increasing muscular power and of improving the functions of the heart and lungs. All the movements of Taekwon-do require precision and speed at the same time. Rhythmical change between strength and restraint is also needed in the performance of its techniques.
