Instructor Info

 

 Our primary purpose at the CTF is to offer the training programs and support services that will make our School Owners and Instructors successful in their personal training and their efforts to train their students.  From this section, a CTF instructor should be able to find and download or print the information and forms they need.  First, however, you must set up a Log-In to gain access to most information.

RANK CERTIFICATION – each student will receive a CTF certificate certifying their rank each time they test (except when they are promoted to 1st, 2nd, or 3rd black recommended ranks).

School Owner Affiliation Privileges

VOTING RIGHTSAll school owners in good standing have the right toattend and vote at the Annual School Owners Meeting.

MARKET AREA – The CTF is responsible for maintaining the integrity of your market area.

TRAINING - We offer training seminars and camps to give our instructors the knowledge to teach safe, effective martial arts to their students. Our Assistant Instructor and Instructor manuals are teaching aids that outline a logical and time-proven approach to teaching Taekwondo. As a black belt progresses through the different levels of instructorship, he should continue to add to his knowledge and experience base. In turn, as each instructor develops his skills, he will pass this knowledge on to his students. This way, all instructors become a part of the historical tradition of this martial art.

PERSONAL RETREAT – All school owners are welcome to book a personal retreat at the Lodge in Limestone, AR where they may train, play, relax or just spend a little time with their family and ours.

Tournaments

 NATIONAL COMPETITIVE PROGRAM - The CTF tournament program provides a safe, fair and competitive environment where students may measure their skills against others, gain inspiration from other martial artists with more experience and meet others in our Taekwondo family. Black belts will earn points at regional tournaments during the year.  The top black belts will qualify to compete for the National ChampionsCTF-075hip in their division at the CTF National Tournament in November.

     TOURNAMENT OFFICALS TRAINING PROGRAM - We offer a series of training clinics for our Tournament Officials that help our black belts to be more effective judges in the tournament ring.  By attending a clinic at least once a year, our officials keep their skills up to date.  Only our most experienced judges earn the distinction of Master Referee.  They are charged with the development of our other officials.
