Korea Trip 2013, and an iPad Raffle!

Gordon WhiteI am so excited to be writing about the upcoming trip to Korea!   There are about a dozen Blue Wave students, from three different dojangs planning on traveling to Korea in April 2013.

We will be visiting Grandmaster Lee's family, touring the sites of Korea, and of course practicing Taekwondo. I have been fortunate enough to visit Korea several times over the years, but this time, I am especially excited to be bringing  Juniors and Teenagers with me.  They are in for an awesome experience.  This is the kind of trip that takes Taekwondo practitioners to the next level.

Over the next several weeks, we will put up posts, pictures, and video to share with our Taekwondo friends,family, and supporters, as we prepare for the trip. To follow along, please visit:
