2019 Korea TKD Trip

Where do we begin? It was an epic trip where 28 of us moved at a vigorous pace clocking 10 and 15 mile days. The intention was to maintain Great Grandmaster Kim's legacy while adding our own flair.

We also went to relevant TKD sites such as the Dan Gun Shrine, Do San Memorial, Chung Geun Memorial, Choong Mu Memorial, King Munmu Underwater Tomb & King Sejong Memorial. We had previously not been to these places with Master Kim but thought our students would appreciate the context.
