The International Taekwon-Do Foundation of New Zealand (ITFNZ) is the
premier Taekwon-Do organisation in New Zealand Recently ITFNZ has
become the only Taekwon Do to be recognised by SPARC ** the NZ
government sporting agency. ITFNZ consists of over 65 clubs nationwide
and has an active membership of over 2000 members. Participants enjoy the
benefits of training under certified instructors, in clubs located from Kerikeri to
Dunedin. ITFNZ clubs practice the original art of Taekwon-do.

Taekwon-Do is a martial art originating in Korea. Its popularity in New Zealand
has flourished due to the positive values and skills it instils upon participants.
For example, mental outcomes of training include confidence, discipline,
leadership, and courtesy. Physical benefits include fitness, balance, focus,
self defence, and flexibility.

Participants meet and train under qualified instructors; they develop
camaraderie and friendships that last for life. An ITFNZ qualification is highly
recognised, both in New Zealand and internationally. ITFNZ gains public
exposure through its committed and professional demo team and award
winning web page.

It was our organisation which hosted the Sharp international tournament in
Wellington which attracted participants from all round the world. ITFNZ is
affiliated to the International Taekwon-Do Federation and our sister
organisation is the United States Taekwon-Do Federation. Our national team
participates in the ITF world championships, held every two years, and enjoys
international experience and exposure.

For ITFNZ 2003 & 2004 have been ground breaking years. We ranked third
out of the 40 countries competing at the 2003 ITF Senior Championships,
winning 3 Gold, 1 Silver and 3 bronze medals. Also, one of our practitioners,
Graham Patterson, was the Male Grand Champion. Our success was
repeated at the recent Junior World Championships, where we again ranked
third in the world and captured 3 Gold, 2 Silver and 8 Bronze Medals.

The ITF Oceania Championships

The ITF Oceania Championships is a bi-annual event that attracts some of
the top competitors from all over the World. Participants compete in sparring,
patterns, destructions, power and special flying / jumping techniques, both
individually and in team events.

Because of the high calibre of competitors it is inevitable that some of the
participants go on to represent their respective countries at the ITF World

A success this far, the ITF Oceania Championships is our organisations most
prestigious event to be held on “home turf” this year.

The ITF Oceania Championships attracts interest from family, friends and the
community hosting the event. The event will receive radio, newspaper and

Sponsorship Benefits

As an ITF Oceania Championships sponsor you not only get the immediate
benefits of patronage from ITF members and event participants but the
important attribute of being associated with an exciting and rapidly expanding
sporting organisation.

We anticipate that media coverage for this event will be similar to that of our
2004 National Championships, which was televised on TV1 news, TV3 news,
Sportzar and over the Radio.

You can expect that any investment in the future of athletes is a positive
investment for the future. ITF is expanding rapidly and it is likely that media
coverage of Taekwon-Do events is likely to increase also. For example,
national events continue to grow in the number of participants and public
