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

Taekwon,
Dr. Grandmaster Kwan Jang Nim Cariati
IX Dan

Dear Woodbridge and ICTF Members,

On March 29th over 150 supportive people gathered together once again at the 37th annual Woodbridge Taekwon-Do banquet to celebrate: friendship, accomplishments and of course everything that makes the ICTF an outstanding federation.  The meal was excellent, the entertainment fun and the 2019 demonstration was truly impressive.  A great time was experienced by everyone and I would like to thank all those people for whom this was their first banquet and the many people for whom this was their 37th banquet.  Your ongoing support makes events like this possible. 

Among the honored guests in attendance this year was recent member of the ICTF Major Luc Blanchette of the Canadian Armed Forces who spoke of the ICTF military expansion committee and the ambitious goal of opening up 52 new locations across Canada in the years to come.  Likewise, the Honourable Michael Tibollo, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport was present and spoke of the positive impact of martial arts with the youth. Being a former student of Taekwon Do himself, Minister Tibollo spoke to his personal support for the ICTF and his commitment to its growth across Ontario. He made a presentation of two certificates of appreciation.  The first signed by him, the second signed by the Ontario Provincial Premier Doug Ford. 

I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of our upcoming tournaments.  On May 11th Master MacEachern is hosting his tournament in Windsor and our yearly ICTF June tournament will take place once again in Vaughn.  Michael Tibollo, The Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport will be present at the tournament as will be other special guests and dignitaries. Without giving away too much, expect to witness some great accomplishments including Mr. Mete’s attempt at power breaking 9 concrete slabs.  

Lastly, as I look back on these past 37 years and witness what has been accomplished from humble beginnings to now, I feel invigorated and am thrilled to see what the future holds.  Together we can and do make a difference in the world.  To the people who have shown me unwavering support throughout the years I offer my most sincere thank you and want you to know that your efforts have not gone unnoticed.  I appreciate you and know I can count on you as you have proven your loyalty to me and the ICTF time and time again.   

 

Taekwon,

November 19, 2018 

 

I am bringing this news to all our members in the ICTF family.  The most senior member in ICTF, our respected Grandmaster Ally CH Teoh has passed away on Nov 19, 2018 Malaysia local time at 3:43 pm, exactly 10 days short to his 80th birthday.

Grandmaster Ally CH Teoh was the most senior member in ICTF, he was the first ICTF member in Malaysia before even ICTF was spread to Malaysia.  After he became our member, he had never stopped doing his best to propagate and promote ICTF in Malaysia.  I had the opportunity to work side-by-side with him in a few occasions and events during my visits to Malaysia.  We shared our vision and passion in Taekwondo, we exchanged our knowledge in this unique martial art of our love.   I had realized that he was a man of modesty, someone very high in seniority and yet very humble in his Taekwondo life.  I had learned much through these experiences with Grandmaster Ally CH Teoh which drove me to be a better leader in ICTF for our members.  We in ICTF are indebted to Grandmaster Ally CH Teoh for all he had done for us in his life.

I want to call upon all of us in the ICTF family to remember Grandmaster Ally CH Teoh not just as a legend in the martial art of Taekwondo, but as an ICTF member who had devoted his life for the betterment of ICTF and for the good of Taekwondo.  Please remember Grandmaster Ally CH Teoh as the most senior grandmaster in ICTF, a member of ICTF, a friend, a comrade in Taekwondo!

 

REST IN PEACE, Sir!  Taekwon!

 

Humbly in ICTF

Dear members,

 

I truly hope everyone had an enjoyable summer.  I know many club owners saw fewer numbers during the summer months but I am certain that class sizes will return to normal now that summer vacations have ended.  I want to thank everyone who responded to my previous message regarding testing time.  Further to that message I would like to reiterate that I encourage all club owners and instructors to apply for testing when they feel they are ready and have meet all requirements .  I cannot stress enough the importance of having open communication and freely exchange ideas or concerns.  As ICTF President I want all of our members to be proactive in their own growth.  I encourage and support our members to think outside the box and to have the freedom to bring up new ideas and try new things without any trepidation. 

 

I would like to start off this open communication by suggesting that at least every 2 years all ICTF instructors attend a 2 day training session where new ideas are presented and knowledge is shared.  Many of us have had wonderful experiences that others can benefit from. Some of us have many years of experience and want nothing more than to share those very experiences.  A closed door shuts people out.  An open door welcomes people and ideas in.  My philosophy is that doors and minds must always remain open.  This is the only way we can guarantee that we foster growth.  Remember that a closed fist can only hold limited grains of sand, an open palm can double the quantity.

 

Taekwon,

 

Dr. Kwan Jang Nim Cariati,
