Actual Activity in the Seminar

We succeeded sharing almost knowledges of Taekwondo with hard and interesting trainings. The original plan was rearranged according to the given condition. We couldn't separate beginners from black belts, and we had a little bit too many people to explain detailed factors of technique or sophisticated aspects of training. So we focused on how to suggest principles of Taekwondo not in words but in hard training, discarding some of too sophisticated contents. We think it was quite successful enough.
