Original ITF Magazine to close

Sadly we have made the decision to close the project due to finally realising that the ITF groups have no intention or desire to work as one. We thank all contributors for assisting us over last two years.

We wish you all good health and prosperity for the future.

ITF Magazine for everyone

The Magazine was created back in late 2007 and ran until 2010. However, at the time when our Magazine was launched, the global ITF politics was on fire. After feeling that issues in the U.K. were becoming stressful, we decided to shut it down in 2010 after 13 issues. August 2020 during the pandemic a decision was made to bring back Original ITF Magazine to try and unite all ITF TaeKwon-Do groups through this medium.

Promoting all groups

We will only cover those ITF groups that follow our ethos of being open to all ITF TaeKwon-Do practitioners world wide. We plan to cover top International TaeKwonDo Federation news and publish it to our facebook channel and, where possible, run six issues of the Magazine yearly. We intend on running the Magazine every two months

ITF TaeKwonDo News for all

We will not favour any one International TaeKwonDo Federation group over another or be dragged into the grubby politics of the art. This is why any communication deemed negative will be screened by our quality standards advisor and, if needed, passed onto our solicitors to communicate with any third body.
