Greetings members,

I hope this message finds each and every one of you well. These are indeed trying times and
we must all persevere in order to get through this. I know many of you have fallen on hard
times and to that end I want each of you to know that as president of our federation I am here
for you.
It has come to my attention that some of you have erroneously been informed that I am not
accessible. There is nothing further from the truth. In fact I am enclosing my personal contact
information should any of you: require information, need help, offer potential solutions to a
problem or merely want to discuss issues pertaining to the ICTF. Many of you know this already
but for those who may feel a sense of trepidation or reluctance to contact me please know that I
look forward to hearing from members. I do not consider my position as something only for the
fortunate few to access. I am the leader of this federation and my leadership and guidance
extends to everyone.
I look forward to hearing from you with any issues pertaining to the ICTF. Please forward any
messages to mastercariati@gmail.com

Dr. Grandmaster Kwan Jang Nim Cariati

Dear ICTF Members,


As proud president of the International Ch’ang-Hon Taekwon-Do Federation, I would like to first extend my most sincere thanks to everyone for all the hard work and dedication you have demonstrated to continuing our legacy and commitment to excellence.  Our strength as a federation does not come from any one individual but rather because each and every Grand Master, Master, Instructor and Student and their families come together and support one another.  We continue to grow because our foundation is strong and built upon the philosophy of Gen. Choi Hong-Hi and the tenets of Taekwon-Do.  


I continue to travel locally, nationally and internationally visiting dojangs and meeting with other Masters and Instructors with the specific goal of maintaining strong what we have collectively created.  One of the obstacles I have encountered is a lack of communication.  We must keep lines of communication open and to that end I continue to make myself available to you.  If things are working well please let me know.  Likewise, should any fine tuning be required in order to keep things working smoothly, let me know.  Last and most importantly, if you are dissatisfied let me know.  It is only through open communication and trust in each other that any problems may be rectified and obstacles surmounted. Trust that I will be happy to give advice, offer differing perspectives and demonstrate true leadership based on my experience and dedication to the ICTF membership.




Dr. Grandmaster Kwan Jang Nim Cariati  IX Dan


ICTF President.
