Welcome,

This website is dedicated to the promotion, restoration, preservation and modernization of the Original Tae Kwon Do.
After its creation in 1954, Tae Kwon Do became the most powerful and popular martial art in the world. This was due to the dedication of the Founder of Tae Kwon Do, General Choi Hong Hi, along with Grand Masters, Masters, instructors and practitioners worldwide. During the 1950′s, 60′s, and 70′s, all Tae Kwon Do practitioners worked together to reach our common goal of spreading Tae Kwon Do. In 1980, General Choi Hong Hi created ties with North Korea which ended unified Tae Kwon Do.

Over many years, the Original Tae Kwon Do Practitioners have been divided into many groups, each with their own agenda, philosophy and supporting organizations. They train and hold Tae Kwon Do events by themselves, not welcoming other organization members to participate. This is not in keeping with the true spirit of Tae Kwon Do.

As a result, Tae Kwon Do Pioneers, Grand Masters, Masters, and instructors who have practiced the Original Tae Kwon Do have banded together to assist and support all fellow Tae Kwon Do practitioners for unity and co-operation regardless of their affiliations. Some of these include:

  • Tae Kwon Do Pioneers
  • Tae Kwon Do Association of Great Britain [ TAGB]
  • Tae Kwon Do International
  • World Tae Kwon Do Alliance [WTA]
  • United Traditional Tae Kwon-Do Canada
  • Tae Kwon Do Academy of Norway
  • Polish Tae Kwon Do Union
