Hello, I'm doing a research paper for the rules in Tae Kwon Do tournaments and I was wondering if anyone could help me out with how many styles of TKD there are such as USTU, WTF, ATA, OSTC and so on. Help would be awsome.
It depends how far you want to drill down. The WTF and ITF are by far the largest and most recognized. If you're interested in the Olympics, follow the WTF rules. The USTU follow the WTF rules. As far as how many organizations exist in the world, I think there's a new one everyday. You'd never finish your paper.
