2012 Gateway Moo Do Kwan Championship

On November 3, 2012, Geteway Moo Do Kwan and Grandmaster Bong Yul Shin invite you to the Gateway Moo Do Kwan Championship. At this championship we will have the theme “The Tenets of Taekwondo”. We believe, as Taekwondo Masters, we need to stress the real meaning of Taekwondo in the dojang and at the tournaments. With the implementation of Sport Taekwondo, coaches, athletes, and parents seem to feel they have permission to behave like patrons of any other sporting event. We feel Taekwondo competition is another avenue to teach our students “The Tenets of Taekwondo”.
