One of the main reasons that the OTFA is a trusted development partner throughout the USA is because it operates according to the principles and values of the ITF. That means respecting each school’s control over its own future, while bringing Schools and Instructors together to work on shared goals and challenges. The Board of Directors oversees and supports the activities of the OTFA, ensuring that the organization remains responsive to the evolving needs of their Instructors, Members and Schools.
