The new era of Taekwondo has now begun in India with the coming into power of the new Executive Council of TFI on 26th June’ 2016. We are honestly committed and dedicated ourselves for the development and promotion of our beloved sport “TAEKWONDO”.Taekwondo is the most popular martial arts of our country and is a regular event of Olympic Games, Asian Games & National Games. We have 39 affiliated members i.e. State Associations and Central Organizations like SSCB (Army, Navy & Air Force), CRPF, CISF, RPF, Police Control Board, etc. Our sports has been recognized by almost all National level Academic Organizations like Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, CBSE, Navodaya Vidyalaya, Universities, Saraswati Vidya Mandir Sanshthan, etc.
Every year we are conducting Six National Championships for different age groups (Sub- Junior, Cadet, Junior and Senior) including one National Open Championship & One National Inter – Zonal Championship on the basis of Zonal Championships. Besides these we are conducting several National level activities like Coaches seminar, Referees Seminar, etc. From this year we are introducing National Inter District Taekwondo Championship for Senior Age group in which Top five Districts from a state will be eligible to take part. This Championship has been introduced with an aim to earn medal in Tokyo Olympics’ 2020 as in our sport there is very less competition in upper weight categories as a result we have no Good players in these weight categories while in International Championships including Olympic Games there is scope to earn medal comparatively more easily in upper weight categories.
We have been participating in almost all official International level Championships. Besides dozens of medals earned in International level Championships we had also earned one Bronze medal in Asian Games, Busan, Korea in 2008.
Our Main Goal is “Tokyo Olympic : 2020” and Interim Goals are Jakarta Asian Games 2018; World Championship ; Asian Championship; Olympic Qualifying Championships and other International WTF recognized Championships.We are very much enthusiastic to achieve our Goal of Tokyo Olympic’ 2020. For furtherance we have already planned to organize one National level Coaches Seminar in which every State will send its best Five Coaches. In this seminar hopefully the Trainers will be Mr. Paul Green, Olympic Coach & Mr. Gareth Brown of Great Britain or from Korea. They will firstly correct the old and outdated pattern of Training method and then coaching method will be upgraded to modern advance technique so that in future upcoming players will be up to mark. The motto behind this Seminar is to bring uniformity in training method in throughout the nation. Lacking in uniformity in training method is the major drawback causing us to be failure in International platform.
