The Columbia University Tae Kwon Do Club, commonly known as CUTKD, is the oldest Martial Arts club at Columbia. It is an entirely student run club sport for learning, training, and competing in the Korean art of Tae Kwon Do. The club is a founding member of the Eastern Collegiate Taekwondo Conference (formerly the Ivy-Northeast Collegiate Taekwondo League), which typically hosts 5 tournaments a year. Beyond competitions, the club also participates in many demonstrations on and off campus, to promote the art throughout New York City. The group is recognized through the Club Sports Governing Board.
