International Taekwon-Do Riccarton is a member of International Taekwon-Do New Zealand and the International Taekwon-Do Federation worldwide. International Taekwon-Do New Zealand is very much a “family and friends” organisation, having grown from a few small clubs in Palmerston North and Wellington in the early 1970s.
These clubs produced black belts that in turn started new clubs, and the organisation grew. International Taekwon-Do was first registered in New Zealand as an Incorporated Society in 1981 and is today recognised as a National Sporting Organisation by Sport New Zealand. Today we have around 80 schools nationwide, who regularly get together for events including: Regional, National and interclub tournaments; and training camps and seminars; as well as many other events.
In recent years our competitors have made huge impact on the international tournament scene and were placed first at the ITF World Championships hosted in Wellington, 2011.
