​Taekwondo United Mission Statement

We are an equal Cooperative of Independent Martial Arts schools that provides services to our member schools and their students.

•We certify rank advancement.
•We hold continuing education seminars, tournaments, high rank testings and certifications.
•We support individualism and creativity.
•We promote the growth of Taekwondo.

    Taekwondo United (TU) is a national martial arts co-op organization with schools located all across the United States.  All TU schools adhere to similar guidelines and procedures ensuring the highest standards by which each school teaches, promote students in rank, and project our image and reputation within the community.  All TU schools have a developed comprehensive training and fitness program for their students to follow.  This enables both children and adults to progress at their own pace and ensures that each school is able to meet the needs of all their students.  Over the years, TU has established a reputation built upon this standard of excellence, accordingly, we do not allow negative attitudes, aggressive behavior, or any misuse of Taekwondo in any manner.  TU schools compete exclusively in tournaments sponsored by the national co-op organization.  TU sponsors several regional and national tournaments, seminars and camps throughout the year and invites all enrolled students to participate in any of these events. 

    Taekwondo United was formed in 2010 by former members of Taekwondo America, UTA, and ITA.  Since its formation, the organization has doubled in size and has attracted some of the finest Taekwondo/Martial Arts instructors in the United States. 

   Taekwondo United practices the traditional style of ITF Taekwondo, "Chang-Hun" which means "Blue Cottage".


Mr. Brister was elected Taekwondo United Chairman for 2016 through the end of 2017.
