I remebering when I used to train TKD as a kid. My dojang was affiliated to this federation. The kata, pumse, hyung or whatever there called were very similar to the ITF. What reputation does Global Taekwon do Federation have? I think the WTF should have more crediblity because its more focused on the Olympic sport. I ask this because it took most of its members five years to get the first degree black belt. Not in three or two but in five as a minimum and no my instructor did not make us believe were deadly fighting machines. It seemed quite legit in my opinion Carlos

I think the GTF is a break-away organization from the ITF. The International TKD Federation has had a number of senior-ranking member break off and form their own organizations ... heck, I think there are at least 2 if not more ITF organizations calling themselves the one-true ITF.
