Local taekwondo gets kick from instructors

A team of eight black-belt taekwondo instructors from South Korea launched the 2013 WTF Taekwondo Peace Corp activities here Tuesday in an effort to develop and promote the sport in the Kingdom as well as strengthen ties between the Korea Taekwondo Association and the Cambodian Taekwondo Federation and its affiliates. The instructors, three of whom hold the ranking of fifth dan while the other five are fourth dan, are all university students and will stay for seven weeks until September 25.

They will conduct practice sessions with the CTF and other Phnom Penh-based associations and schools such as Boeung Trabek High School, New World Institute and Hosanna School. They also plan trips to Battambang and Siem Reap. All costs have been borne by the World Taekwondo Federation, one of two global governing bodies of the martial art.
