원장

Dear 80 million Global Taekwondo Families, Welcome to the website of Kukkiwon, World Taekwondo Headquarters that give impression to the world.

Kukkiwon was founded as the world’s first Taekwondo Dojang in 1972. After that, our Kukkiwon has tried to make an effort for the Taekwondo culture promotion through succession and development of the Taekwondo spirit and skills so far. Additionally, we have contributed to human peace through spreading and disseminating the Taekwondo as well as having received a great affection from the global Taekwondo family.

Taekwondo has spread out to the world under the name of ‘Hanryu (Korean wave),’ and the interest of the global community about Taekwondo has increased. Kukkiwon will make the ‘Unifiying world through Taekwondo’ where everybody can enjoy regardless of ethnicity, nation, area, and ideology and furthermore contribute to world peace through the precious culture and positive value of Taekwondo and creative change and innovation.

Kukkiwon has tried its best to lead the bright future of Taekwondo by strengthening the global status of Taekwondo, the instructor’s educations, the Poom/Dan Promotion test system, etc.

From now on, Kukkiwon will boost up the status of the world Taekwondo Headquarters where there is Taekwondo spirit, and the world Taekwondo families are impressed based on the achievement accumulated for the past 40 years.

We hope that you always give us the interest and enthusiastic support, and we wish you all success and happiness at your home.
