Learn Taekwon-Do

Taekwon-Do is the Korean Art of Self-Defence and directly translates as 'The Art of Hand and Foot'. Like many Martial Arts, Taekwon-Do is steeped in history and roots that stretch back centuries.

Taekwon-Do is, arguably, the most dynamic and academic Martial Art in the world, with a genuine ranking system, code of ethics, conduct, cultural discipline and promotion of health, well-being and personal safety. It is also the most popular of all Martial Arts world-wide.

Taekwon-Do has many benefits socially, mentally and physically, including the following: improved co-ordination, enhanced body awareness, increased flexibility and cardiovascular fitness, boost self confidence, augment social interaction and communication skills, encourage cultural awareness, nurture general wellbeing and positive self-image, and offers the opportunity to progress and improve self-esteem through the belt grading system.

In addition to these benefits, this truly dynamic art teaches and promotes the following Tenets (life rules): Courtesy,Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, Indomitable Spirit

The ITFA teaches ITF-style Taekwon-Do which follows the syllabus laid down by the Founder, General Choi Hong Hi, in the Taekwon-Do Encyclopedia. The syllabus includes Pattern, Step-Sparring, Free Sparring, Destruction, Terminology, Self-Defence and Moral Culture.

The ITFA is proud of it's an unrivalled lineage of Instructors. Senior Master Andrew K H Rhee, the ITFA Founder, Chief Instructor & Examiner, is the eldest son of First Grand Master Rhee Ki Ha (FGMR) who was the Founder's 'Best Ever Taekwon-Do Student'. Senior Master Rhee was also Assistant to the Taekwon-Do Founder, General Choi Hong Hi, from 2000-2001, travelling with the General internationally and assisting in his teaching.

The ITFA is based in Sydney, Australia but has Instructors, Associate Members and Instructors around the World.
