It is very exciting to announce the official launch of the World Taekwon-Do Alliance. As you may know, due to the past ten years of political strife and the passing of many leaders within the Taekwon-Do world community, there has been a great need for leadership and unity. There is now a movement to bring a new beginning of organized leadership and service. The Original Pioneers of Taekwon-Do have not only endorsed this effort to preserve Traditional Art of TaekwonDo but lend valuable counsel to it. These iconic figures include, but are not limited to:
- Grand Master Kong Young Il
- Grand Master Cho Sam Min
- Grand Master Young Bo Kong
- Grand Master Woo Yup Yang
- Grand Master Robert H. Hardin
- Grand Master Scott McNeely
It is the important mission of the WTA to support the development and continued growth of Traditional Taekwon-Do throughout the world. It is our belief that Traditional TaekwonDo, as taught by the original pioneers, is an effective means of helping people to develop their full potential. The philosophy of this traditional art form makes it unique in the area of physical and character development. With a vast amount of experience, the WTA is without question, the most senior counsel of leadership available today. This non-politically based entity is dedicated to high quality instruction, promotion, competition, good will, and the long-term welfare of the Traditional art of Taekwon-Do.
The time to honor the past, unite the present, and create a successful vision for the future of this art is now.
