Yikes we have just recieved the ITF certs and 4 plaques we bought,  from the ITF NK group after 14 months of weighting, weighting, and weighting we finally said enougth and left ......... Took ages to print up 8 certs  and make the plaques :-(
 
We left and returned to ITF C due to this and within weeks we get them,,, They sent our plaques and certs together.....
 
The certs are OK but WOW the certs have changed now....up by the ITF logo it says 'Founded by General Choi Hong Hi'  and mini the certs are plastic
 
What a joke!  How the heck are we supposed to explain the changes to the members, The next batch of Degree members are going to see a difference esp those that grade up next time who got these certs.
 
Ahhhhhhh I new ITF would have difference over time but this one really takes the mick.
 
Oh well end of rant, Seems the koreans are really takintg control of there ITF, Next they will probably change the CREST

Hi Mr Snow, well their crest has been modified a tad, they now have the words ITF over every crest on their uniforms. Their dobok pant leg carry the korean characters Taekwon-Do instead of the lettering ITF.
As for the certs and plaques, i'm sure if you explain to your students what exactly happened they won't mind, or you could have them transfered or replaced by proper ITF certs through the Gen Sec office?

Hope it works out!
