Taekwondo boosted by equipment donation

Cambodian national taekwondo team coach Choi Young Sok and South Korean embassy deputy general secretary Kim Hye-won made an official handover of taekwondo kit and equipment to 90 students at the National Institute of Physical Education and Sports on Monday.

The equipment included mats, uniforms and protective gear worth about $6,000. “This donation is from the South Korean government, the embassy and Kukkiwon, the World Taekwondo Headquarters,” coach Choi told the Post. “I am a Kukkiwon missionary, who is obliged to promote this martial art in the Kingdom.

I’ll be trying hard to find more support from other official taekwondo organisations because I love Cambodia.”
