Hapkido Federation hits 12-year milestone

The Cambodian Hapkido Federation celebrated its 12th anniversary on Saturday with a special competition held at Princeton Private School. The event allowed several of the local students achieve level promotions, with four obtaining brown belts and six receiving green belts after competing. Ieng Samrach gave a talk about the activities of hapkido in the Kingdom back in the early 1970s when he was one of six black belt practioners of the South Korean martial art.

Two other surviving black belts of that time include Tang Sela and San Kim Sean, who as the former CHF President helped reform the Federation 12 years ago. Current CHF president Seng Bunsong then hosted a party at the school to cap off the festivities.
