Identification of Title (Chingho Pyosik)

     The Founder General Choi required that everyone must know who is "in charge" in any class so he designed these badges and said that if you are recognized as an "Official I.T.F." instructor or authorized Assistant then you must wear a badge for everyone to see your formal identification, they must be worn on each shoulder of your Dobok whenever you are teaching or assisting in the class.  SIZE - these badges are all 9 cm x 9 cm.
