About the United Taekwondo Association 

In 1971 the United Taekwondo Association (UTA) was founded by Grandmaster Ahn.  His vision was for the UTA to serve as an organization to facilitate the development and spread of Taekwondo in the United States.  It was to be a vehicle through which students and instructors who did not have the benefit of a Grandmaster to receive assistance without the politics of the Kwans - which was an issue in Korea.


As the focus of Taekwondo shifted to recognition as an Olympic sport in the 1980’s, the UTA’s influence and operations were confined to a regional, rather than a national, scope.  The purpose was still the same - to assist students and instructors who approached the UTA in their time of need.
