In 1998 Andrew Hill started his WTF journey at IL GI Taekwondo, a club with its roots in Blackpool whom were members of the British Taekwondo Federation (BTF) a World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) affiliate group. After IL GI split with the group in Sheffield, the Sheffield based group renamed itself Sangmu Taekwondo, the high grades decided to join the World Taekwonmudo Academy, now known as British Taekwondo & Mudo Academy under the umbrella group British Taekwondo Council (BTC) which is for NON-WTF and predominantly ITF groups cutting all links to the WTF, ETU and the British Olympic Association.
Andrew decided in 1992 whilst all this was going on that it was not in the interest of WTF Taekwondo nor WTF practitioners in Sheffield to participate in a non WTF route so Pilsung Taekwondo club joined directly to British Taekwondo the National Governing body for WTF in Great Britain, this has given Pilsung and its members the pleasure of being recognised by the British Olympic Association through the official national WTF governing body.
The club is well established in Sheffield and has sessions running 6 days a week, in Hillsborough, Pitsmoor, Crosspool and in Attercliffe at the very impressive English Institute of Sport. All our instructors are CRB checked, fully qualified and insured to teach WTF Taekwondo.
