The history of the Polish Taekwon-do Federation dates back to 1993, when it was established as a regulatory organization of the Polish Federation of Far Eastern Martial Arts. It is therefore one of the oldest organizations of martial arts and sports in the country. From the moment it was founded the masters have improved both their skills and teaching methods as well as various organizational, legal and financial solutions.

The experience gained over a quarter of a century has resulted in working out unique methods of transferring knowledge to both children and adults. PFT moves on the market of martial arts and sports by adapting to inevitable civilization changes – in every aspect.
