HOONLYUN: The Journal of The United States Taekwondo Alliance
The United States Taekwondo Alliance – A National Organization
The United States Taekwondo Alliance was founded in 2023 by Grandmaster Doug Cook, 8th Dan, and a senior student of the late Grandmaster Rhin Moon Richard Chun. As successor to the United States Taekwondo Association established in 1980 by Grandmaster Chun, the mission of the United States Taekwondo Alliance is to promote excellence in the traditional and evolving art of taekwondo. While continuing to promote the legacy of Chun Kwanjangnim, the organization actively inserts its own contributions into the great chain of martial wisdom, focusing on the art rather than the sport, consciously viewing taekwondo as a Way of Life.
With affiliate schools across America, the USTA faithfully maintains traditional technique and Korean martial arts doctrine by hosting educational seminars, online and in-dojang classes, a comprehensive standardized curriculum, certification across a number of levels, cultural and training tours to Korea, and through HOONLYUN: The Journal of the USTA (www.hoonlyun.com).
Numerous benefits are available to USTA individual members and affiliate schools, including:
- A Standardized, Traditional Taekwondo Curriculum
- Rank Certification
- Instructor Certification
- School Affiliation
- KUKKIWON certification
- Instructor and Master Training
- Special Seminars
- Inclusion in our National Registry
- Joint-Marketing Opportunities
- Authorized use of USTA-Branded Merchandise
In an effort to maintain a strong connection with the “cradle of taekwondo”, the USTA hosts martial pilgrimages to SOUTH KOREA every three years. These expeditions offer direct exposure to the epicenter of the Korean martial arts.
