I meant to post a picture from our pizza party at Bucks house yesterday - here it is:
Pizza Party - Thanks Buck and Kaite!
We went to the Kukkiwon today to register for the course. It was exciting to get our badges and Instructor Course Books.
A Picture of our Manual, and the course banner in front of the Kukkiwon Gate
Today is Grandmaster Lee's Birthday! We went out to eat dinner to celebrate. We had SamGapSal, a pork dish cooked on the table skillet. This is one of my favorite Korean disshes.
Grandmaster Lee doesnt look to happy in the picture, but he is! We had a good time.
I have not included a picture of our hotel yet, so here it is, the SamJang Hotel
The other thing we did today (Kline, Emerson, Danforth and I) was go to a bathhouse. We hit the hot (and cold) tubs, which felt great. Mr. Williams and Mrs. Heathman went to Namdamun market, it was experience, but they didnt buy much.
We start the course tomorrow, at 8:30 am, the day ends at 6:00pm. On the schedule is a 30 minute warm up in the morning, followed by a lecture until Lunch. The afternoon will cover basics and Poomsae. I will let you know how it goes!
By the way - thanks to everyone in the group for taking all the pictures on the blog! I have only brought a Video Camera, so everyone else is taking the still photos. Just wanted to give some credit so Mr. Danforth stops whining.
Thanks for the pictures Mr. Danforth!
