Mr Carr, Mr Booth and Mr Prins travelled to Derby for a seminar with Grand Master Choi Jung Hwa, 9th Dan and president of the ITF. The seminar was hosted by Master Harry of the ITUK and attended by around 200 people, several Masters from accross the globe attended. Master Choi spoke about the "Do" of Taekwon-Do, and the importance of your fellow students and instructors. The class was taken through fundamental movements by Master Wheatley who displayed fantastic power in every technique. Master Choi made it clear how difficult Taekwon-Do is to master as he asked questions to which nobody had a correct answer, particularly with regards to sine wave, which was covered in great detail. We were told why we practise patterns and how to maximise power in turning kicks.Imperial North-West attendees:Left to right: Miss Lyndsay Walkinshaw, Blue Dragon TKD students, Mr Alasdair Walkinshaw, Mr Eduardo Pillar, Mr James Kinnear, Mr Stuart Booth, Mr Adrian Prins
