Rang World Tang Soo Do Federation - Belgium Seminar
by Master John Correlje
Saturday, April 26, a number ATO members
participated in the seminar conducted in Bruxelles,
Belgium by Grandmaster Ho Sik Pak of the Hwa Rang
World Tang Soo Do Federation.
Netherlands was well represented with many
participants from different schools and
organizations. Tang Soo Do is alive and well in the
Netherlands and Belgium! Almost a 120 participants
and 14 Masters were present to train under guidance
of Grandmaster Pak.
The day started with one minute of silence for the
victims in the attacks in Bruxelles.
The program of the day began with the promotion of a
number of attendees who had tested in the days
before the seminar in the presence of Grandmaster
Pak. The All Tangsoodo Organization wants to
congratulate all on their new rank earned!
Following group photos the seminar began with the
warm up. On the day, three different programs were
given by the Grandmaster Pak and all were very
worthwhile. The first part was about Basics.
Second was learning Chi Ryo Hyung, a healing form
developed by Grandmaster Pak. A very nice Hyung to
practice with lots of breathing exercises. The third
part covered kicks and self-defense.
We want to thank Kwan Jang Nim Ho Sik Pak, Sa Bom
Nim Alain Vermeulen and his executives for the warm
welcome, the good organization and their
hospitality. This is a good base to work from, to
get started with more co-operation between the
different schools and organizations in Europe and
make Tang Soo Do grow.
