DO YOU WANT TO MAKE HISTORY?

| DO YOU WANT TO MAKE HISTORY?
Why don’t you join us as we make an historic trek across the DMZ that has separated Korea since 1945! This is open to any Taekwon-Do student and will take place this October (2015). Details are being worked on and so far we believe we will fly from Beijing, China to Pyongyang, the capital of the DPRK. There, will we participate in Taekwon-Do related events with our North Korean hosts for 4 days and 3 nights.
| From there, we drive south through the DMZ, yes …that is correct, we DRIVE THROUGH THE DMZ, the most heavily fortified border in the world. Few outside people have ever entered the north, never mind drive across the DMZ.
|General Choi Hong Hi – Tae Kwon Do Father made all this possible when he led the 7th ITF Demonstration Team there in 1980, which resulted in the North embracing and supporting the Original Taekwon-Do, ironically formed in the ROK Army of the South, of which General Choi was a founding member.
| After entering the South, we will travel to the new Taekwondo Park Muju called the 태권도원(Taekwondowon). That is a must see as well. Finally after leaving the Taekwondowon, we will take a ferry boat to Jeju Island, South Korea where General Choi formed the famous 29th Infantry “Fist Division” which has become known as the “Womb of Taekwon-Do” – marked by the Fist Tower Monument that is fast becoming an historic site for Taekwon-Do!
