Who are we?

We are British Taekwondo Control Board (WTF) Limited – trading as British Taekwondo – the national governing body for the Olympic style of Taekwondo.
We have a Council elected by the club membership, and a Board of Directors which consist of operational and non-executive members.

BT-LogoGB Taekwondo (aka Sport Taekwondo) is the world class performance programme of British Taekwondo which receives Sport England funding for their Talent Development Programmes and UK Sport funding for their World Class Potential and Performance Programme. GB Taekwondo is not an NGB.

The other national governing body for Taekwondo is the British Taekwondo Council (ITF). Both national governing bodies (British Taekwondo and the British Taekwondo Council) receive Sport England funding through an administrative body (Taekwondo Organisation Limited) for their respective activity programmes

Para-Taekwondo has been accepted by the IPC to be part of the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Programme.

This is exciting news for the sport of Taekwondo, both globally and in the UK, and naturally, it presents us with many opportunities and challenges.

Our current policy is that all our Clubs will accept members of any ethnic origin, gender, age or disability etc, however the increased exposure resulting from our Paralympic status demands that we develop our competence and confidence in delivering Para-Taekwondo across our Club network.
