Who is the WTF?
The World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) was established in 1973 and is the International Federation governing the sport of Taekwondo. The WTF recognises national Taekwondo governing bodies recognised by the National Olympic Committee in the pertinent country, one in each country, as its members.
What is British Taekwondo?
British Taekwondo (WTF) Limited, known as British Taekwondo, was established in 1982 and is the Governing Body for WTF Taekwondo in the United Kingdom. British Taekwondo is a member of the WTF and the British Olympic Association (BOA).
Only through British Taekwondo can athletes participate in any WTF and ETU sanctioned event, including, G1, G2, European Championships, World Championships and Olympic Games.
Can any taekwondo practitioner or a taekwondo club be affiliated to the WTF?
The WTF is an International Federation governing the sport of Taekwondo, as recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). It consists of national Taekwondo governing bodies recognised by the National Olympic Committees of the pertinent country as its members, only one in one country. Thus, individuals, dojangs and any other Taekwondo organisations cannot become members of the WTF.

What happens in the event of an injury or accident?
Like any sport, we expect our share of bumps and scrapes. We put precautions in place to avoid injury, but accidents happen. More serious injuries should be reported to us via your instructor.
This is done via an accident report form. Instructors should fill out the form and send it to Graham Preece.
