OTFA Unification Announcement 2019

December 5, 2019

Dear Members of ITF AAs in the United States:

As you all know, for the past year the leaders of the three AAs recognized by the ITF: ATFI, NTA and OTFA, along with Red Tiger TKD, have been working together in order to merge into a single and stronger AA in the USA. We would like this letter to inform our members about this process.

The Merger Committee has decided to formally join the existing Original Taekwon-Do Federation of America, OTFA, a legally registered 501.c.3 entity in the USA, and an approved ITF Allied Association. Eventually, we will change the name in order to reflect this newly unified position and you as a member would be part of that process. As a consequence, ATFI and NTA would be dissolved according to their own constitution and by-laws by the end of 2019.

The Merger Committee has structured a new leadership and a 2020 plan which we think will be welcomed by all of our members.

We realize that you have many questions; please visit our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) to find the answer of the most common questions. If your question is not answered here, please Contact Us.
