I had the privilege of being part of the British contingent to attend the first World Taekwondo Chungdokwan Federation Summer Camp at the Korean National Sports University in Seoul between the 15th and 18th July. This was an excellent event pulling together Chungdokwan members from around the world and included many high ranking masters.
The training under the Grandmasters of the Chungdokwan covered both poomsae and sparring with detailed explanations and plenty of opportunity to practice. The final day was spent working on fitness with a mountain walk!
As well as the physical training there was time for sightseeing and socialising. Great to be able to spend time with fellow Chungdokwan practitioners from around the world.
It is hoped that this will become a regular event running either ever year or every two years. Hopefully next time there will be an opportunity for other Bluewave members to attend and I will share the details for the next camp as soon as they are known.
