In Baden we will train the whole summer through, with the exception of the week of our training camp in Fiesch as well as the week of the Stadtfest.

TKD-Baden-Mitglieder trainieren mit TKD Pionier der 1. Stunde
posted by sg at 07:18:18 30.04.2012
On the weekend of April 20-22 TKD-Schweiz head instructor Peter Regan and Assistant Instructor Brian Cox travelled to Cork, Ireland, to attend a 3 day International Instructors' course with TKD Pioneer Hwang Kwang Sung (IX). Grandmaster Hwang was one of the first three people in ITF Taekwon-Do history to be promoted to 9th degree by General Choi Hong Hi. Originally from what is now South Korea, Grandmaster Hwang learned TKD in the Korean army, but has lived and taught Taekwon-Do in the United States since 1971. After many years as a special assistant to General Choi, GM Hwang has now dedicated himself to teaching and preserving Taekwon-Do techniques exactly as General Choi created them. The seminar was very well attended with over 100 members, nearly all of which were black belts. Sabum-nim Regan and Boosabum-nim Cox had many opportunities to demonstrate their techniques and receive corrections from one of the most experienced Taekwon-Do teachers in the world. For photos of the seminar, visit our gallery.
