• The Taekwon-do Research Journal

  • The Taekwon-Do Research Journal (TRJ) is an annual peer-reviewed publication of research articles written primarily by ITF Headquarters members, but also by well-qualified researchers at other institutions, from all academic fields. The mission of TRJ is to encourage, recognize, and reward intellectual activity beyond the dojang, while providing a forum for the exchange of research and ideas. TRJ encourages researchers to become interested in research by displaying examples of what is studied and by offering the means of communicating knowledge between these disciplines to achieve a holistic effect.

    TRJ is published electronically on the web, with print issues released annually. Articles published in TRJ have been cited in major peer-reviewed journals from a wide range of disciplines. Print copies are distributed to dojang, school, and association in our networks.
