Chin Mu Kwan Taekwon-Do became a Federation (CTF) in 1966 around the same time the International Taekwon-Do Federation  (ITF) was formed. CTF is dedicated to promoting traditional Taekwon-Do, to maintain the highest standards and certifications in Taekwon-Do.

The Great Grandmaster Howard Y. Kang 9th Degree Black Belt (Kang, Yon Ho) passed away April 4th, 2021. 

The CTF Grandmasters are honored to announce Master Charlie Kang (Great Grandmaster’s son) has been promoted to Grandmaster so the CTF lineage and legacy remains in the Kang family.
