Master Kirkwood and Senior Instructors within the Alliance have now affilaited and joined ITF Korea, and look forward to working with many inspiring Grandmasters, Masters and Instructors within this ever growing Global organisation.

Scotland is fulfilling the vision of General Choi’s Legacy by officially representing ITF HQ Korea the only ITF group recognised by the Korean Government. We aim to bring TaeKwon-Do values by promoting and encouraging development of all ITF practitioners regardless of Race, Religion and organisational affiliation. We do this through equality, impartiality, respect and humility by adhering to the Tenets of TaeKwon-Do. One Spirit, One Force, One ITF.

Grandmaster Sutherland heads ITF Scotland and we look forward to many adventures together, attending IIC events, competitions and seminars. The ITF Korea is all about networking, no politics, just the love of Taekwon-Do (As is should be) and sharing and learning from each other.

Some of our senior Instructors in Scotland look forward to attending the first IIC in Scotland in November.
