21st Sep 2007 Copyright Facts
We are stunned by the absolute manipulation of information and blatant disregard for the truth displayed by a group claiming to be of International standing, and up holding the tenets of Taekwon-Do. This group actually cited General Choi himself in the lawsuit claiming that he did not act in the best interest of the ITF. This is a sad day for all ITF members when individuals from within your own family seek to dismantle our founders inspirations.
