About GTF and
Grand Master Park Jung Tae
The GTF is committed to the traditional values taught by our founder and teacher, Grand Master Park Jung Tae. It was through his humble spirit that we were privileged to learn the meaning of a true Martial Artist. The goal of the GTF is to carry on with his legacy. Integrity, respect, indomitable spirit, humility and outstanding technical achievement are components that have built the GTF into one of the most respected martial arts organizations in the world today. We are also recognized for our promotion of peace and harmony through Taekwon-Do training.
Our dedicated instructors have a passion for excellence, and you can be assured that you will receive the best training worldwide. We take pride in our outstanding athletes who prove over and over again, their technical expertise and leadership. Grand Master Park dedicated his life to the promotion and development of Taekwon-Do worldwide. From the late 1950's, right up until his death in 2002, he devoted his time and energy to teaching and demonstrating his superior technical skills to all Taekwon-Do students. His legacy of technical perfection still reaches all corners of the world.
Grand Master Park had a unique ability to teach, regardless of one’s physical limitations or language barriers, and his unselfish willingness to share his knowledge instilled that passion for Taekwon-Do in the hearts and minds of the students. Even though the GTF members are known for their excellent technical skills, the world also recognizes the strong emphasis placed on friendship and loyalty between nations. This is evident at local and international championships.
