Grand Master Hwang Kwang Sung, K-9-1

UITF FOUNDER/PRESIDENT

GM Hwang founded the UITF to facilitate global initiatives to preserve General Choi, Hong Hi's legacy. He has lead several organizations over many decades.  Today, through the Unified International Taekwon-Do Federation, he serves as an extended arm of General Choi. He was promoted to IX Dan by General Choi December, 1997.  His life-long dedication to preserving General Choi's legacy is admirable. GM Hwang simultaneously served as Special Assistant to General Choi, official Spokesman of the ITF and Secretary General of the ITF. Becoming a member of UITF enables direct access to GM Hwang.  You need not leave your current affiliate to join.  GM Hwang is a man of humble origins, thus, he does not require exclusivity.  UITF promotes "unification" as was General Choi's last wish.
