WELCOME TAEKWONDO GRANDMASTERS, MASTERS, AND INSTRUCTORS!
WTMU is committed to bringing world-class Kukkiwon Taekwondo programs and services more accessible to you.
We have been busy organizing an opportunity for all eligible practitioners to participate in the
2021 Kukkiwon International Taekwondo Master & Examiner Course this coming November
in Chicago, USA.
As you may know, the current KMS membership approval standard has been amended to better serve its members and to enhance the value of the Kukkiwon Dan certificate.
Announced in August of 2020, the new criteria is for KMS members to hold and obtain the International Master Certificate before the 31st of July, 2023 to avoid losing their promotion rights.
In addition, the lecture portion of the International Master Course can be completed online via the WTA website: www.wta.kukkiwon.or.kr/en/ Only the 3rd class section is currently available; the 1st and 2nd class sections will be available soon.
We want to thank the World Taekwondo Headquarters, KUKKIWON, and the WTA, World Taekwondo Academy for empowering Taekwondo practitioners to become stronger leaders who can better impact their own community and make a difference in our global Taekwondo society.
Detailed Course and Registration information is at www.wtmu.org/2021KukkiwonCourse.
We hope you can join us this year. Please let us know if you have any questions.
