GAITF Mission Statement
To offer amateur Taekwondo sports programs through a volunteer base, providing the opportunity for people of every age group and walk of life to broaden their physical, mental, moral and spiritual development as amateur Taekwondo athletes and to build social responsibility and good citizenship through the Taekwondo ideals of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit.
GAITF Vision Statement
To offer amateur Taekwondo athletes and volunteer officials opportunities to develop to their highest level through a program of sponsored local, regional, national and international competitions, support of athlete development and sports training programs and standardization of training and certification for officials, coaches and competition support volunteers.
GAITF Organizational Orientation
As an organization the GAITF is whole-heartedly Athlete First in its orientation.
The leadership and core membership are united in sharing founder Master George Tapia’s vision of an amateur sports organization that puts the best interest of the athlete to the forefront as a matter of actual practice, as a Core Value of the institution, rather than a seldom implemented “lip-service” policy.
GAITF Athlete Development Program
The goal of the GAITF Athlete Support Program is to identify amateur Taekwondo athletes who consistently demonstrate the ability, the will and the commitment to become national and world class athletes, then to encourage and support the development of those athletes to the best of it’s ability. One of the tools used is the GAITF Tournament Point System which ranks member Black Belt Athletes according to their performance in sparring competition at Events recognized by the GAITF Athlete Evaluation Committee.
GAITF Athlete Support Program
The goal of the GAITF Athlete Support Program is to provide financial assistance to as many ADP ranked Black Belt Athletes as possible in the form of subsidies to cover the athlete’s costs of attendance and participation in State, Regional, National and International competitions. The subsidy may be used to cover travel, lodging and meal expenses or entry fees. To this end, 20% of all Entry Fees collected at GAITF Events are deposited in the GAITF Athlete Support Fund reserved exclusively for this purpose.
While fostering increased participation in the sport of Taekwondo remains a primary goal of the GAITF, membership
and participation in all of the programs of the GAITF is open to every practitioner or supporter of Taekwondo without regard to age, sex, race, creed, religion, or national origin.
Love for and a desire to practice Taekwondo is the only requirements for Individual Membership.
