The Unified International Taekwon-Do Federation was founded to maintain the core values as General Choi Hong Hi intended, including his eternal legacy, the Art of Taekwon-Do. Grand Master Hwang Kwang Sung is the President of the Unified International Taekwon-Do Federation and served in several prominent roles in the ITF under General Choi Hong Hi. Grand Master Hwang faithfully followed the teachings of General Choi as extensively and thoroughly as he was able.
Incorporated as a legal entity in 2004, the Unified International Taekwon-Do Federation strives to teach Taekwon-Do as the Founder taught it. The Unified ITF provides a central resource and community around the General's Legacy providing educational Seminars, Workshops and Certification against these resources. The Unified ITF also provides International Competition and Open World Championships to showcase the Authentic Taekwon-Do and to foster goodwill among compatriots in the Art.
