Master Lee Heyes 6th Dan Kukkiwon was one of a handful of UK instructors to attend the course and graduate with the prestigious title of International Instructor. On completion all the masters who attended the course were instructed by the Kukkiwon President Woon Kyu Uhm to promote Unified Taekwondo to the International Taekwondo community. This site contains information and materials aimed at promoting Unified Taekwondo as directed by the Kukkiwon.
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art and sport characterised by it's spectacular kicks and strikes. With over 60 million global practitioners, Taekwondo has quickly become the world's most popular martial art. This rapid growth since it's origins in the latter 20th Century has created a diversity in styles and training techniques.
In 2005 the World Taekwondo Headquarters (Kukkiwon) acted to unify Taekwondo technique across the member nations of the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) and the countless independent organisations practicing Taegeuk based Taekwondo. The revised Taekwondo textbook detailed the most sweeping changes to taekwondo technique since the original was published 18 years previously and was first presented in detail to the international community at the 12th World Taekwondo Foreign Instructors Course held at the Kukkiwon in July 2006.
