The Choong Sil Taekwondo Federation (CTF) has been training high quality martial artists since 1984. We offer students and instructors alike, access to the highest quality martial arts training available. In addition, we are available on a 24/7 basis to answer any questions you may have about our organization.
The CTF practices the Chang Han pattern system as well as four additional patterns developed by Grandmaster Robert Hardin to complement our teaching progression. These four “discipline” patterns are integrated with our philosophy which stresses goal setting, inspiration, development of a strong work ethic and, ultimately, achievement of one’s goals.
The CTF’s primary responsibility is the development and certification of its members’ martial arts skills. We have developed a teaching structure to help CTF affiliated instructors insure a student’s progression through the martial arts ranks. The CTF rank certificate guarantees that each holder meets certain minimum requirements prior to earning their rank advancement.
The CTF offers various services to complement a member student’s training program at their taekwondo club. In addition to rank certification we offer our individual student members the following services:
- National tournament program
- Advanced training opportunities
- Monthly newsletters
- Transfer privileges and temporary training at other CTF affiliated schools
- Student Accident Insurance that covers the student during training, tournaments and other Taekwondo related events.
Through our affiliation with the World Taekwon-Do Alliance, we can offer our members the highest possible level of Black Belt Certification but also the opportunity for International competition.
Our web site is designed primarily to provide information for our student members and affiliated clubs and schools. If you cannot find the information you seek or have suggestions regarding the site, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 870-428-5353.
We, too, at CTF Headquarters are always striving for “constant and never ending improvement”.
