World TaeKwonDo (WT), previously called the World TaeKwonDo Federation (WTF), is the internationally-recognized body governing TaeKwonDo. Since TaeKwonDo is a recognized Olympic sport, World TaeKwonDo is a member body of the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF).
WT has a National Governing Body in every country (Canada’s is TaeKwonDo Canada), managing the sport in Canada and maintaining oversight of TaeKwonDo classes.
You will learn throughout your TaeKwonDo journey that the sport doesn’t just assess your physical ability, it tests your mental strength. After all, TaeKwonDo is a way of life, not just a physical sport. To reach any Black Belt Dan ranks, you must progress through the junior and senior belts (Gup Ranks).
