The International Taekwon-Do FGMR Associates (ITFA) aims to bring together like-minded individuals to learn and practice traditional ITF-style Taekwon-Do, as laid down by the Founder, General Choi Hong Hi.
The ITFA was founded on 9th July 2010 by Senior Master Andrew K H Rhee, with the first ITFA Taekwon-Do class opening in Sydney (Australia) at Waverley College of Arts, in the heart of the Eastern Suburbs.
The mission of the ITFA is to maintain the highest standards of Taekwon-Do teaching and practice through:
- Educating Taekwon-Do practitioners
- Passing down knowledge through the ITFA’s impressive lineage from General Choi, FGMR and Senior Master Andrew K H Rhee.
Whilst anyone can apply to join the ITFA Instructors and students who are not members may also attend ANY ITFA Taekwon-Do events. All ITFA Courses, Seminars, Classes and Tournaments are always open to any practitioner, regardless of affiliation. Taekwon-Do students have the freedom to stay with their group and still access the deep knowledge and skill base the ITFA has to offer. At the same time, non-ITFA members are also free to invite Senior Master Rhee to teach their students.
On a domestic level, Senior Master Rhee teaches Taekwon-Do classes in Sydney’s ITFA HQ in Alexandria (NSW, Australia) to anyone aged five or above.
The ITFA also has Instructors teaching Taekwon-Do classes in NSW, VIC, QLD (Hervey Bay and Rockhampton) and New Zealand. In January 2014, the ITFA welcomed its first Individual Associate Member in Argentina, South America and now also has members in Nepal and the USA. The ITFA looks forward to working with more countries in the future, enabling its members to travel and attend more events internationally.
