Why is being affiliated with World Taekwondo Federation important for someone looking to learn a martial art?
Being part of a world governing body like the World Taekwondo Federation adds credibility to your training and your blackbelt. The WTF maintains standards for techniques across the board and those techniques are universally accepted. Today, anyone can open a martial arts school with only a blackbelt and market themselves as "mixed martial art" schools. There is no "watchdog" for that type of activity. The problems that present themsleves from that can be dissastrous.

The World Taekwondo Federation is one of two governing bodies for Taekwondo, the other being the International Taekwondo Federation. The World Taekwondo Federation sets the standards for Taekwondo sport which includes demonstration sport as well as competition poomse (forms or kata). In 187 countries, the forms you practice at Metro Taekwondo Studio are the same which means your rank is recognizable everywhere.
