The Cambodian Hapkido Federation held a general assembly hosted by Bridgeton International School on Sunday to vote in executive members as well as address issues such as its financial difficulties and lack of a training facility. Among seven positions decided by the vote, Seng Bunsong retained his Presidency for the Federation’s fourth term to run from 2011-2015, while Kim Chanmony was named vice-president and Kung Chandyna appointed General Secretary. Hapkido, a martial art from South Korea, has been practiced in the Kingdom since 1968.  TRANSLATED BY IN SOPHENG
