We are glad to announce that three new schools have decided to join our organisation. After a weekend seminar on the Spanish island Mallorca the schools of Pedro Campillo Frontera, David Martinez and Carlos Leal Campón joined the World Hankimuye Federation. We welcome them to our family.
On Wednesday, May 11, three persons tested for their next dan grade at the Trio Sports Center in Vantaa, Finland. Master Ko Baek-yong and instructor Klaas Barends watched three people test for their next dan grade.
In the first week of master Ko Baek-yong’s visit to the Netherlands he taught a week long HKD training camp at Chongmukwan in Urk. Participants from several Dutch schools trained three times a day under the ever watchful eye of master Ko. Each session lasted at least two hours.
Master Ko Baek-yong arrived in the Netherlands where he will kick off the European Hankimuye Seminars of 2016. Master Ko will also travel to Finland and Spain to teach hankido.
Instructor Roland van Boxtel, leader of our charter school Jeilwkan in the Netherlands, received the official World Hankimuye Federation membership certificate out of the hands of Leon de Heus.
On May 21 and 22 master Ko Baek-yong will teach an introduction course to hankido on the island of Mallorca. In May master Ko will tour Europe to promote hankido and hankumdo, the seminar on the island is master Ko Baek-yong’s first visit to Spain.
In preparation of master Ko Baek-yong’s upcoming visit to Finland in May of this year, instructor Klaas Barends from the Dutch Hankido Federation visited Finland for a weekend filled with hankido and hankumdo training.
For the upcoming seminars we have designed a new T-shirt. The T-shirt is made of 100% polyester and available in different sizes and colours.
A poster was designed of the upcoming hankido seminars. You can download a .pdf file and print it to promote your event with master Ko Baek-yong.
In May master Ko Baek-yong will visit Europe to teach Hankido to members of the Dutch and Finnish Hankido schools. Here we will keep you updated on when and where seminars will take place.
