Hapkido Fed awards new belts to students

The Cambodian Hapkido Federation handed out belt promotions to a group of students after an examination held at Bridgeton School, located near Boeung Trabek market in Chamkarmon district, on Sunday.

During a ceremony at the school, 1st Dan black belts were awarded to six students, 2nd Dans black belts to two students and brown belts to 13 students of the South Korean martial art.

According to CHF general secretary Kong Chan Tina, the students hailed from Eagle Club and Master Seng Club, both in Phnom Penh.

“It’s not easy to obtain belts of Hapkido unless you’ve try very hard because Seng Bun Sung, who is the president of the Cambodian Hapkido Federation and a 10th Dan black belt, takes great care before offering a belt to someone,” Kong Chan Tina told the Post.
