What do you like MOST about the Int'l TKD Festival?
Damian Villa - Sr Athlete, Mexico National Team Member
The ITF has always been a very well organized event with Top Players from the US and around the globe in attendance year after year. Participating in the ITF several years in a row helped me get international experience without ever leaving LA area and ultimately helping me out in my overall growth as a TKD player. Why would you recommend ITF for other athletes?Read more...

Korea, the country I fell in love with
Coming to Korea from Germany in 1978, I fell in love with Korea's history, culture, nature and people so much so that I became a Korean citizen. Now as the head of Korea's tourism industry, I have the privilege of promoting Korea's numerous attractions that I have enjoyed so much in the past and still enjoy today. Some people might say there isn't much to see in Korea, but I strongly disagree. Visitors will find beautiful landscapes and fascinating historical relics in every corner of the country. Local customs and mouth-watering delicacies form part of our treasured heritage. And then there is the unstoppable energy of modern Korea, a power rooted in ancient history that has catapulted the once impoverished country into the exclusive club of wealthy nations within less than 50 years. Let me and my team help you discover the charms of Korea and assist you in planning the perfect trip. Welcome to Korea! I hope that you will fall under the spell of its warmth, beauty and traditions like I did.
