Subject: 2019 Membership Registration: OTFI – Ontario Taekwon-Do Federation International
Dear Students and Parents,
As you may know, your school is a proud member of the Ontario Taekwon-Do Federation International (OTFI). This is not for profit organization bringing together ITF schools and practitioners across Ontario.
The objectives of the OFTI are to promote and educate residents of Ontario on ITF Taekwon-Do through various activities and initiatives including, but not limited to, hosting educational events for member clubs (i.e. seminars, workshops, etc.), sanctioning tournaments within Ontario, as well as ensuring adherence to the rules and regulations, including technical standards, of the Canadian Taekwon-Do Federation International (CTFI) and International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF).
In 2018, we reached 176 members and were able to bring Grand Master Laquerre to Ontario for a seminar in February. This fall, I will be leading our second event at Peel Taekwon-Do in Brampton, Ontario (September 15, 2018). We look forward to bringing you more events in 2019!
Registration for 2019 is officially open! To become a member you must be an active student (regardless of rank or age) with an affiliated school. Some of the benefits include:
- Strong network and support system for students, parents, instructors and school owners;
- Two sponsored events per calendar year (i.e. seminars, workshops, etc.); one in the National Capital Region and one in the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding region;
- Discounted rates for OTFI-affiliated events such as tournaments, workshops, seminars, etc.
For a minimal fee (new members: $20 / existing members: $10) per student per calendar year you will be helping to build a stronger and brighter future of Taekwon-Do in Ontario! I strongly encourage you to become a member and take advantage of the learning activities that will be made available to members-only.
The process is simple – you can enroll on your own online: http://otfi.ca/otfi-membership-application/
