Grandmaster Lai & Master Danny Gonzalez have completed a Taekwondo Training Tour to Korea

Grandmaster Lai, the Secretary General of the California Unified Taekwondo Association (CUTA), the official state organization for USA-Taekwondo, together with CUTA President Pyoung Hoe Koo, organized an 11 day Taekwondo Training and Cultural Enrichment tour to Korea. Funding was provided by Mr. Sung Woo Park of the Korean Cultural Center of Los Angeles. Twenty-two California representatives which consisted of eight masters, an instructor, eight members of Demonstration Team M, and five sparring winners from the Jimmy Kim International Championship. The CUTA was one of the first delegations to visit the Taekwondo Park Headquarters in the county of Muju in Jeollabuk-do Province, South Korea.

The eleven day excursion consisted of numerous tours of the peninsula, elegant dinners with Governors and Mayors, and comprehensive Forms, Sparring, and Demonstration Clinics at the Kukkiwon and Keimyung University. All Masters received diplomas and certification from world renowned Grandmaster Kyu Hyung Lee (1988 Olympic Demonstration Master) and the staff of the President of the World Taekwondo Federation, Chungwon Choue.

The highlight of the trip, however, was the visit to Muju County. Muju is the region that was selected for the construction of the new Taekwondo Theme Park Facility. Muju is known as the “natural” county, whereas the region prides themselves as being far removed from city life. This region is also famous for their firefly festivals. The Park will be 570 acres and span across 9 valleys. Grandmaster Lai is planning to bring a group of students to train at the Muju Taekwondo Park upon opening day in 2013.
