Bulgarian Taekwon-do Federation I.T.F.
At the end of 1985 Master Kim Ung Chol from North Korea came to Bulgaria. He was the first Taekwon-do ITF master to visit our country and he established the foundations of this martial art in Bulgaria. His first visit was short, but he left in Bulgaria keen pupils and faithful followers. On their demand in 1988 the National Sports Academy (IPC "G. Dimitrov" then) invited officially Master Kim Ung Chol to visit Bulgaria again. The aims of this stay were the establishment of Bulgarian Taekwon-do Federation (BTF - ITF), formation and training of Bulgarian National Team for participation in international competitions and differentiation of Taekwon-do subject in the NSA (The Master became the first teacher in the NSA). The mission was successful and in 1990 BTF - ITF was established. In the same year Bulgarian national team participated in the World Championship in Canada.
