Annual Technical Conference

On the weekend of January 27-29, one hundred red belt and black belt students, instructors and Masters from across Canada attended our first Annual Technical Conference an AGM since 2020. The AGM was held on the Friday evening with members of the Board of Directors in attendance. During the Technical Conference all 24 patterns as well as 3 & 1-step sparring were covered. Keeping true to the teachings of the founder of Taekwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi, the students and instructors were drilled on correct sine wave and the proper application of techniques. By the end of the 12 hour training everyone was exhausted but motivated in their efforts to keep Chang Hun Taekwon-Do alive in its purist form. Thank you to ITF-TAO Canada for hosting this year. We all look forward to the 2024 Technical Conference and AGM.
