Korean Taekwondo Association
Despite the historic merging, dissention between the kwans did not end at the 1955 meeting. There was still much animosity between the various masters.
In November 1958, the Korea Tang-Soo Do Association applied for membership to the Korea Amateur Sports Association (KASA) but it was denied because there was a rival organization, the Korea Kong-Soo Do Association. The KASA agreed to accept the application only if both organizations united as one. Representatives of the two associations met and agreed to unite under the name Korea Soo-Bahk-Do Association. However, before the application could be approved, General Choi sent a petition delaying the proceedings because his school, the Oh-Do-Kwan, was being left out of the process. Finally, on September 3, 1959, representatives of the six kwans agreed to unite under the name Korea Taekwondo Association and Choi was elected its president, however, this organization would not last very long. Members who attended the meeting were:
- The Director of the Korean Amateur Sports Association
- The Director of Physical Education from the Ministry of Education
- General Choi Hong Hi
- The Kwang Jang of the major kwans: Chung Do Kwan, Oh Do Kwan, Song Moo Kwan, Chang Moo Kwan. and Moo Duk Kwan.
