I know there is the ITF and WTF, but I belong to the CTF (Chin Mu Kwan) we are Traditional and are not focused around Tournament Sparring.

I was wondering if there are other Federation out there like this.

• In 1954 Grandmaster Kang opened his first Martial Arts School.
• On April 11, 1955, Grandmaster Kang was present when the new name was selected for the Korean National Martial Art. It was called Tae Kwon-Do. This name was submitted by Gen. Choi Hong Hi and was approved by the President of Korea at that time.
• In 1960 the original founders went on a Worldwide Goodwill crusade to promote Tae Kwon-Do.
• In 1962 Grandmaster Kang organized his own Worldwide Federation, Chin-Mu-Kwan.
• Definition: Chin = True, Mu = Martial Art, Kwan = Home
(The red color of the patch represents the Deep Spirit of TAE KWON-DO)
• In the early 1970’s Grandmaster Kang relocated in the United States.
Grandmaster Kang has a long list of accomplishments in the development of Tae Kwon-Do. Listed below are just a few:
• Grandmaster Kang realized the difficulties a new student endured with the long periods of time in between ranks, so in 1955 he introduced another colored belt level-Yellow Belt. (Originally there were only 3 colored belts: white belt, brown belt and black belt.) He was frowned upon by all the other Masters, but within 5 years it became obvious to all the Masters that the colors: yellow, green, blue and red (changed from Brown) were necessary for the advancement of students in Tae Kwon-Do.
• Grandmaster Kang was responsible for the development of 2-Steps – another approach to 1—Step training for students.
• Grandmaster Kang was responsible for the translation of Chinese Manuscripts on tournament competition. Before the time, Tae Kwon-Do was only displayed by demonstrations. Because of his efforts, Rules and Regulations were set up for tournament competition.
• Grandmaster Kang introduced Protective Equipment, over 50 years ago (about 1955), by covering pieces of bamboo with canvas.
• Grandmaster Kang was one of the original Masters to Create Forms (Hyongs) which we practice today around the world.
• Grandmaster Kang has taught Tae Kwon-Do in dozens of countries around the world.
• Grandmaster Kang is one of the original founders of Tae Kwon-Do and one of the very few living original Ninth Degree Taekwon-Do Grand Masters in the world.
• Grandmaster Kang was the 3rd person promoted to 7th Degree by Gen. Choi, back then 7th Degree was the highest rank.

I noticed that free sparring rules are "control to the head" and "light contact to the body" is this how all sparring in the organization is conducted or are these standards for official tournaments only?

I mean we dont do many tournaments

we have national testings every few years in which there is a sparring tournament and usually someone gets hurt the contact is harder.


When we sparr at our regional summer camps we usually dont go all out cause its sparring not fighting.


One instructor said "you guys can go hard if you can tell me his moms name the name of his dog....etc.. i thought it was funny"

I belong to the same organization but across the county from jwitts (whom I do not know). We tend to spar a little harder. We generally stay away from punching in the face but head contact is allowed. The general rule we have is that you are not going to be causing injury but everything short of that is allowed. How hard you spar is dependent on who you spar. If you want to go hard then find someone that wants to and if you just want to play then find someone that wants to play. Hard sparring does not mean out of control and again your intent is not to cause injury as everyone needs to go to work the next day.

We have three or four organizational tournaments during the course of a year but there are open tournament most ever month (sometimes several a month). The amount of competition is up to the individual but organizational tournaments are seriously suggested.

If you aren't sparring hard then you aren't realizing your full potential. The possibility of inflicting injury is a given. This is martial arts training, not knitting. If you're too much of a ***** to take a punch or kick then perhaps a full contact style is not suited for you.

Aliveness does not equal sparring hard.

Some of you need to stop posting until you have read the Matt Thorton threads.

Would you concede that it is a major part of aliveness training?

No, because you asking such a stupid question means you still don't get it.

I'm part of Taekwondo International we are centered around traditional and practical use, but every now and then we do have tournaments in which punches to the head are banned
