ITF Promotions Congress DPRK 2017

At the recent ITF Congress in DPRK, applications for 7th Degree and above were considered and approved or not approved.


Master Brown was promoted to Grand Master 9th Degree,  and Mr Kessler was promoted to Master, 7th Degree.

This is excellent news for the BTF as we already have a good reputation throughout Europe and the World and these recent promotions, especially GM Brown’s, raises the profile of the BTF even higher.

These are good times for the BTF and undoubtedly within the next 24 months more 7th Degree promotions will be approved, as long as the criteria is met. 

The 2019 ITF World Championships, England, were approved as the host so again a major Championships will come to Liverpool.

For those 6th Degrees who will be eligible for Master, this will be a good date to aim for.  Please see GM Brown for the criteria.
