Grandmaster In Hui Won
The U.S. Central Taekwondo Association or USCTA was founded in 1994 by Grandmaster In Hui Won, 9th DAN Black Belt, and President of this rapidly growing martial arts organization. Grandmaster Won came to the United States from Korea in 1980 and became a U.S. citizen in 1988. Since 1980, and prior to the founding of USCTA, Grandmaster Won operated several successful Taekwondo schools under the name of Grandmaster Won's Taekwondo in and around Oklahoma City and the throughout the State of Oklahoma. These schools still operate successfully today under that same name, Grandmaster Won's Taekwondo. And now under the USCTA, schools in the State of Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas have been added to this very successful and very well run organization.
The USCTA is growing at an alarming rate.
The USCTA provides all services in conjunction with owning and operating small, medium, or large schools or dojangs throughout the United States. These services include promotions for all Gup levels from White to Black Belt (USCTA Gup Certificates), DAN Certifications for all Black Belts (USCTA Black Belt DAN Certificates), Instructor's Certification, DAN Certifications directly from the Kukkiwon (World Taekwondo Headquarters), and Black Belt DAN; Certifications directly from the Han Moo Kwan headquarters in Seoul, Korea.
The USCTA is housed in a beautifully spacious 10,000 square foot building (one of the largest schools in the State of Oklahoma) recently built by Grandmaster Won on 25 acres of land just south of Oklahoma City. This selected site will also contain an extensive outdoor training facility for endurance training, survival training, traditional Korean regimental training, obstacle course training patterned by the military style of training.
On the inside of this most spacious and well-equipped training gymnasium, Grandmaster Won frequently conducts special technique seminars, taekwondo competition seminars, referee certification seminars, and school operation/business seminars. In fact, Grandmaster Won teaches good business practices and trains many current small school owners how to run a most efficient and successful program.
Grandmaster Won holds the 9th DAN Kukkiwon Black Belt, 10th DAN Han Moo Kwan Black Belt. He has been elected as President of the USTU in the State of Oklahoma for seven (7) years.
Grandmaster Won holds the highest rank in the world as a First Class International Referee and attended the 2nd International Referee Seminar in Seoul, Korea in 1975 during the 2nd World Taekwondo Championships hosted by the Kukkiwon. He was Certified as Master Instructor in Korea in 1974 and was also Certified as a Referee in 1974 by the Korea Taekwondo Association.
