Master Park visited 2012 London Olympics

Grand Master Park and some of his current students visited London to watch 2012 London Olympics TeaKwonDo competition game of Master Lee, Dae-Hun(4th Degree Black Belt) who is one of many Grand Master Park's former student during his 13 years of Joong-Gye Elementary school head coach in Seoul, Korea.

Grand Master Park had a great influence in Master Lee's TaeKwonDo competing career from 5th grade to 6th grade. Grand Master Park has always been in influence of his competing skills through his career advancement. Grand Master Park has kept in touch with Master Lee and his family who are also TeaKwonDo family. Master Lee’s father also is a TaeKwonDo Grand Master and Grand Master Park's colleague.

Master Lee won a silver medal this time because of his extreme weight adjustment to meet -58kg. He is just 20 years old. So we will look forward to his gold medal at 2016 Olympics in Brazil.

Master Lee! Great job & Congratulations.
