I just asked my instructor about KTA Dan certificates. He said the same thing, that KTA had not issued Dan certificates since April of 1980. Since that time all Dan certificates come from Kukkiwon. My instructor called Kukkiwon about Richard Hackworth and was told that he was a bad guy doing bad things and was never a Black Belt in Taekwondo. They know about his selling fake KTA Dan certificates and ask that anyone who has a KTA certificate from Richard Hackworth to please write the Korea Taekwondo Association directly at:Quote:

I guess since the KTA is a member of the WTF, the WTF is investigating Richard Hackworth, as the KTA has had people check and find out their certificates were fakes!
PS. It event says on the KTA site that all issues involving Dan certificates be addressed to Kukkiwon! WOW!
