well once again my dream has eluded me..my trip to the kukiiwon must again be postponed in light of what happened recently and getting time off from work i decided now is not the safest time to take my trip....so ill just give for now an explination of what the kukkiwon is and its activities....you can call it the world capital of taekwondo..it is located in kangnam district in seoul korea...it has taekwondo organization offices which include world tae kwondo ,,korea tae kwon do ,,and a giant training stadium..it was completed in 1972 and was the first and only stadium built specifically for taekwondo study..and major taekwon do competitions....it also holds promotional testing for dan belts and processes aplications and certification for black belts from all over the globe....it also has several acedemic programs for physical education degrees....to train there and to get certified for my fourth dan there has been a dream a long time coming but id rather wait and do it right then to test over here. ill just continue to train hard and see how i compare with the best of the best when i get there.

I want so bad to go to Korea. Being poor is highly over rated! Master Todd Miller from New Hampshire goes every year. He is heading out again this month to visit his Hapkido and Kuhapdo instructor, Grandmaster Lim Hyun Soo. Someday I'll go!

Take care
