Dear Members,
I on behalf of the International Taekwon-Do Federation(ITF) would like to extend my heartfelt thanks and congratulations to all the Taekwon-Doists the world over who have been devoting themselves to the worldwide development and evolution of the original Taekwon-Do.

Founder of ITFS

The Late Sir Michael Pang Hin Siong (6th Dan)

The late Sir Michael Pang was one of the first few practitioners in Taekwon-do in Singapore. His devotion to the art was so great that he continued to practise taekwon-do even in his 60s, and in doing so nurtured many students. Since his unfortunate passing, his students have banded together to continue his legacy through ITFS.

What is Taekwon-Do

Every movement of Taekwon-Do is scientifically designed with specific purpose and a skillful instructor may, therefore, develop in the student a belief that success is possible for anyone. Constant repetition teaches patience and the resolve to overcome any difficulty. The tremendous power generated from one’s body develops the self-confidence to meet any opponent, at any place, and in any situation. Sparring teaches humilty, courage, alertness and accuracy, adaptability as well as self-control. Pattern teaches flexibility, grace, balance and coordination, while the fundamental exercises develop precision and teaches the method, principle, imagination and purpose. Eventually, this training permeates every conscious and subconscious action of the student.
