Journey on Taekwondo International Masters Course

IMG_5367

Hereby is the experiencing and diary of me to take the 51st Foreign Master’s course held in kukkiwon on 2016 July 24th to 29th.some photo may not has the copyright, so for prevent trouble please dont repaste it to anywhere. This article is original written by Chinese .. so some opnion aimed at the Chinese people. please forgive me.

In the early july,when i was preparing for the hanmadang application, i saw the international masters course was planned to held on the kukkiwon website.

Taekwondo International Masters’s Qualification is the most Authoritative taekwondo certification on the world and it was the only master’s certification approved by the kukkiwon. which the world taekwondo headquarters.

the requirement of this certification is very high and the test chance are very less.in previous years,there must have some high dan masters to recommend you ,so you can take the course and the pass rate for this course is not high.(commonly one or twice per year and once pass only about Dozens of people)

so in the whole world,there was only about less than 4000 people passed and held this certification.(except the korean domestics. the data was copied from kukkiwon website )

but this certification was not famous in china, so in our country ,we have not has so much masters who have this qulification.( the number is no more than 200)

In china,this test used to be held twice. once is 10 years ago and the next is last year. but i was missed all the chances.

this time ,the education and the test are all in the kukkiwon HQ, its a very good chance to feel the original taekwondo master’s course. so i submmit my applicaion immediately.

before i go, it;s necessary to prepare some documents. its so complex especially the signup form and the photo. and if i want to go korea, i need to applicate a korean visa first.

so i use whole afternoon to prepare this… the kukkiwon’s phone was very hard to call in.. and WTA also… finnally i successed called them. and get all the information what i need.

WTA offical  are very friendly. it dispel my doubts. and the i prepared all document to the korean embassy for the korean visa on passport.

the visa was approved in 5 days.. cause shanghai has many guests come to korean and doing massive of Shopping… so shanghai people;s korean visa is much easier to get:

5 years mutiple visa, once for 90 days.

finished the ticket for airplane, then finished the application on hanmadang.

then the day turns to the july.24th

image001

on july24,i drives very earlier and fast to shanghai pudong airport.

then take an china southen airplane to takeoff.

image002

2 hours later, i got the incheon airport. seoul

image003

just after i check out from the immigation , many girls rushed to me,the taking photos on my behind.. i was just shocked with this situation.

image004

that was cause there was some korean stars take the same plane withme..

this happening everyday in seoul… just the time a stay in the incheon airport . it happened 3 times.

korean has too much stars and the female fans..

image005

the first matter in the airport is to buy a Sim card. in the world which can not alive without network. this is the most important things

but korean’s sim card is so complex. it should upload the passport for cerfitication. and the most complex is it need to turn on and off 4-5 times… so i make the whole afternoon for the signal.

image006

image007

The kukkiwon is in the Gangnam district of seoul. its the center of downtown and everything takes expensive.
cause i always doing travel myself. i think its not necessary for me to book a room but a hostel instead. finnally i found one.. it was just 300 meters distance to the kukkiwon. and walking there by about 5 minutes far.

the provider has an event,can get me to the hotels’s nearest bus station for free… so then i get there,but shocked…..

image008

the kukkiwon was ON THE MOUNTAIN!!!!!  as you seen on the picture… so i had to taken my luggage and climb the mountain…. although the sim card doesnot work. i can not use the map… so i had to using a snapshot with the map and guess the route…. finnally i get the hostel after half an hour. after checkin, the boss draw me an picture of the route to kukkiwon… although that was only 300 meter but i think i have walked for 20 minutes for up and down on the mountain.

in Ancient days.. the army was called normal army, mountain army and navy in chinese… then i know why they are different now…. Cause shanghai has no mountain even has not has the hill. the highest hill point on shanghai is 103M, so as shanghai people… taken a luggage to climb the moutain is really crazy and tired. and korea has many mountains and hills, everything tastes spicy…. it was very fit to the Sichuan and Chongqing people i think.

image009

image010

image011

Finnally i has arrived the mecca of taekwondo, the Kuk ! Ki ! Won !

image012

A huge poster of kukkiwon demo team was in the entrance of kukkiwon.

image013

i saw many pictures of kukkiwon on internet. it seems big… but somebody acturally gone there has told me, thats not big…. and also joke me, it was same big as a secondary school’s stadium in china.

well, its an 40 years old;s construction.. when i acturally get there… i think … its more *bigger* than a school;s stadium… because…… you can just get a round… with in 2 minutes..

when i arrived there the kukkiwon demo team was performing a GreatTaekwondo performance.. but i need to find the registration center immediately.

image014

just walk one minutes… i found it

the registration was very simple… you just give them your dan certs copy and the passport’s  copy and the fee to them… and the signature on some papers such like health document and signup form… then they do something in the system..and then everything was done.. they will give you an recipt and tell you some notices such like the time.. and dont forgot to take the dobok, you can leave with in 3 minutes.

this time the instructor course was devided into 2 classes. one is class A for level1 and 2 the other is class B for level3 such like me.

my order is the last one in class B cause my name is start with Z the last character in the alphabet.

image015

After registration,cause its not the kukkiwon working time. so most the department of kukkiwon has closed. i had to hangout. get out of kukkiwon and then turn right for about 50 meters youcan  see this very famous shop ..the KSD korea shop

image016

image017

i can buy many things that very hard to get in china.

image018

All kind and all the size with Adidas dobok.

image019

image020

the kang il pil;s poomsae guide , in china only has chinese version.. so i bought an english version. and then some doboks.

image021

when getting out of kukkiwon road,there is a very long road. i met two man which from hongkong SAR. this time only 3 people from China mainland. and all of us was come from shanghai. but hongkong SAR has come for about 20 people. we chat and go. then has gone to here… the famous kukkiwon gate. i have considered hundreds of times what pose i will take when i firsttime come to this gate.. but acturally because there are many cars passby . so its very hard to find a time point without car… finnally the hongkong friend taken a picture such super tourism style for me.

image022

go bit ahead is the mooto shop… i do not like this brand at all

it always do some Flashy without substance products…. i saw many teenages just got the 1st dan. then go to mooto buy an yellow poomsae dobok with a humanmade old style belt..

this makes him/her  looks hundred years old… but actually just a kid.. i do not like this style.

image023

then i go to myundong for exchange the money from china yuan to korean won.

image024

its here.. the best rate one just was in front of the china embassy.

image025

i dont know why but i think this construction looks very japanese meiji dynasty style..

image026

the wifi prepaid card… but the chinese introduction was wrong..

image027

lanzhou noodles even in korea

image028

in korean, the beef was very expensive then in china…..

image029

finnally i found one… just 20000 won for this all.. but after the dinner .. i found that this Restaurant has branch in shanghai….

image030

in korea’s street .. cars bicycles and people walking in the same road…. but same like japan… everyone take the orders.

image031

the metro underconstruction.

image032

kukkiwon was in front of the yeoksam dong station.. the teheran road.

IMG_5367

image037

when get out kukkiwon.about 50 meter was the gangnam district taekwondo association. also climbing the moutain… very tired.

image038

the second day i wake up very early.. but when i arrived kukkiwon… i think i was not early.

image039

my classmates from all over the world was there much earlier than me

image040

the firstday morning there is an opening ceremony. simply that include the leader’s speech,bow to the flag and something else…. all the asian country has the similar proceduce.

image041

in the opening ceremony, they need 2 people for volunteering captain. as Class B, there is an American guys and an Ethiopian stands out. cause this guy was an american and he was the caption..so i call him,Captain America

image042

then the president of kukkiwon make a speech,then everyone bow to him… then is the proceduce for taking the key of box, and book and the Id card for you… later you should tell the dobok’s size with adidas standard to them.

image043

these all

image044

before going there.. i have read the instructor’s course’s textbook twice. but it shocked me that they have a new one,and it was two times the thickness with the older one.. and the content was complete not the same..

image045

my deskmate is a korean.. who teaching taekwondo in hongkong.

image046

can speak korean and english very fluently. so lucky me.

image047

image048

the time table.very full on 5 days schedule.. but as an instructor in China taekwondo association..
I have taken many kind of seminar…so i think thats not big problem.

image049

then we have gone to the first class, about the taekwondo history.
i was very interesting on how the korean think about the taekwondo histroy. because i have heard too much versions, the instructor  Kim YS  from yonsei university told us the history by detail.

image050

as the korean, taekwondo is a way of life.

the president of S.korea was training the korean yoga and taekwondo.

image051

as korean, they do not denied the fact that korean is originally from the china martial arts.

the taekwondo just originally from the china martial art. but as a produce dependencies of china.in the ancient jeson and koryo dynasty.taekwondo inherit separately as subak hee,kwon beop, and taekgyeon. till they has Until the Japanese occupation era of the jeson, finnally combined with the Okinawa Karate formed the rudiment of modern Taekwondo.

image052

The history of modern Taekwondo

image053

After the anti-Japanese war,when there was no split of korea at that time, there were 5 main style of dojang.

image054

image055

Tangun Era 4270 the first photo of morden taekwondo was captured

image056

as the korean war era,Taekwondo is the martial arts in the army. the professor said: This was is from the Soviet Union, China, North Korea vs Korea and the United Nations war.

image057

After the Korean War, a number of new leaders emerged.

image058

About Cui Hongxi’s introduction section. As the result of the ITF friends may cause discomfort, I will not write here. Anyway, the Korean people on his evaluation is very objective. The point is that Cui Hongxi did not create the Taekwondo, but proposed to use the word  taekwondo instead of the tang soo do. to make difference with this two kind of martial arts.. (just like the Japanese karate alternative tang soo as the name of the Japanese martial arts) he just changed the name of the taekwondo

image059

The earliest leaders of the Korean Taekwondo association. The first is a general. The third term is Cui Hongxi. Until later became kim un yong

image060

image061

In 1964, there have been full contact style taekwondo similar to now kyukushin karate was, this is the protector at that age. Now is at the memorial hall of the kukkiwon.

image062

1960 ages,Bruce Lee and Li kyungku teaches each other

image063

the father of mudek kwan  important person with mexican taekwondoimage064

In 1971, Kim unyong became the president of the Korea Taekwondo Association. In the same year, South Korean President Park Chung Hee defined Taekwondo for South Korea’s national sports. so the image above the word “ku ki taekwondo” (Park Chung Hee later was death in  assassination, now the South Korean President Park Geun hye is his daughter)

image065

1972,11,30 kukkiwon was built

image066

In 1973, due to the rise of Bruce Lee martial arts film, the popular Bruce Lee film, South Korea rise a popular of  taekwondo. The Taekwon V robt cartoon was on the same year. so many child join the taekwondo family

image067

image068

1988Seoul olympic published some stamp. and in this olympic taekwondo was defined as a demonstration game.

image069

in 1994 taekwondo was defined as an olympic offical sports.and decided to be taken in 2000 syndey olympic games.

image070

in 1996 korea gov adopted tkd as a symbol of korea

image071

2000 sydney.. i think its not necessary to say more

image072

and then in the olympic  taekwondo always the core sport

image073

obama and lee myungbo  obama has honorly 9th dan

thats all about taekwondo history course.

image074

having lunch at the kukkiwon cafeteria (the love of tae), cost 6000 won for a traditional korean lunch

image075

en, that’s it and the classmate andy says it was Prison-Style Tray …

well, we all are prisoner now.. haha

image076

the kukkiwon cafeteria , cause me remember the canteen of university.

image077

the first course in the afternoon.. is a 9th dan old master making on Speical Lecture..

The course for international course was based on english.. the korean style english has the different pronounction and this master using many complex english words.. so after every sentence.. i will have a consider what he said. and this master said many about chinese culture.. so i had to convert his korean-english style chinese word into real chinese word,then try to understand what he is talking about.

and another interesting matter for korean-english is they using P instead of F all the time..

such like the number  55 was pronounced as piputy pypu

and i think he has a great temper. once the kukkiwon’s officer just knocking the door.. then the professor shouted on him…”Why interrupt me!?” and some korean words ,although we dont know what happend …and this may want to show us how the korean social level system works…

image078

the course talked about the taekwondo’s meaning and the difference between oriental martial arts and western sports.

image079

As a chinese,being taught chinese by an foreigner.. the feeling is so strange.

the professor explained the meaning of character “武” and it was combined with “止” and “戈” ,then explanied the meaning of 止 and 戈….  i feel asleep on that part….. but the europeans seems very excited with these..

image080

then is the oriental  philosophy. such like lao tzu…. the korean pronounce of laotzu  as “ro ja”  similar like another god (nezha) in the fairytale of china. that’s really funny

image081

then is the confucianism…. that’s 100% chinese culture…  and i had to learn the korean version.

image082

something about buddhism

image083

why people come to dojang?

image084

taoism… also chinese culture… i think south korea is a country of taoism. there national flag is a symbol of taegeuk ….

image085

taekwondo in very earlier time is just for survive.. after the rise of nation.. it was a military training method. and now.. it’s a game and for the citizen;s strengh.

image086

the difference between sports and mudo. and the professor said about the difference of Coach and Sabeom; Our captain america has answer the problem …cause his english is very fast fluently and original.. i just understand half what he said… maybe the professor also..

image087

image088

the korean understanding of chinese martial art -> wushu was original from the ancient indian in shaolin temple and arose in northern china. that’s correct.

now developing as taolu(form) and sanda(sparring). they seems very clearly on chinese martial arts

“wushu learnd from animal, it can running on the wall, but there are no wall in the olympic. now its just for health ”

i was very angry to hear that… but he told the truth…

wushu has many unbelieveable techniques..before you see it by your eyes. you will not believe them.

but the masters in china do not teach them for public. and these techniques also are very hard to learn.. so it restrict the development of wushu…

image089

then the prof starts since hi….. taking the course with his….. cellphone displayer…

all student include the first line can not see it.. but the prof enjoy on… hehe

then after playing a unwatchable movie in his cellphone about 10 minute… class over

actually i do not like the lecture with this style… but as a teacher in university… i know that every teacher has his own style on teaching. you had to adapt others.. its a kind of training.

Think about:

Taekwondo is evolved from the chinese martial arts, this history also recognized by the Koreans, and they face this history. However now in the world stage, Chinese martial arts wushu is far behind of taekwondo on the globalization development , .it’s time for chinese martial arts’s leaders to face up and introspection this problem.

the second course in the afternoon is the demonistration course. simply it teachs you how to establish and cultivation the demo team.

the master of this course is a very very interesting 9dan korean uncle. seems common in the korean drama. actually this course is very humor

image090

later a friend of me told that this master was the one who naked protest  the Jump dan promotion on kukkiwon.

image091

image092

image093

the course mainly told about how to establish the demo team.. how to split the time and the training method etc…

image094

the third course is judging method of taekwondo , simply it means how to organize a taekwondo level test fast and effective. and what standard should be use to rate the student’s study result.

image095

then i was taught chinese characters by the korean again… korean-style-chinese-characters are the characters or words that not often use or ancient words/sentences in now china ..we can read it but feels very strange..so had to understand what the word want to explain by guess.

image096

after taken this course.. i feel very tired…

the next session is Dan promotion test. and it was not able to watch.. so, go home is the best choice.

image097

when i passby the kukkiwon reissue counter, i take in and reissue all my dan certs.

kukkiwon always chance the dan cert’s style since 2006 maybe tomorrow’s dan cert is different fro today’s style.. so,make a set for memory.. As a collection.

image098

the reissue for kukkiwon cert is a very trouble problem in china.

image099

(this is the reissued dan cert.. it will print the reissue date on the dan cert)

image100

also i have do some reissue for my friends every time reissue need to sign for 3 times.. so complex.

image101

I bought an Adidas Dobok for my self.. KSD shop has the name embroidery service.

and its very fast to make your name on the dobok.

image102

image103

the dan cert proctector. seems so nice

image104

the kukkiwon textbook, and i am sure it was a new version. cause i have bought one in 2004  its a very heavy book.

image105

the poomsae guide of kukkiwon text book.

image106

KSD newest light dobok. similar like Adidas Fighter.

image107

this dobok’s feeling so good.cause its very light.image108

a dobok for my friend who is now in the national poomsae team.the flag patch seems funny.image109

for me,the most serious thing in korea is to have dinner.. cause i can not read any korean words.. so i had to find some pictures.. if there are no pictures, i had to order something randomize… depends on lucky

image110

For example, one night, i go to a chicken and beer restraurant .and i dont know which one is better.. so i ask the waitress and pointed to the next table, and using the korean words i only can say..  THIS, ONE, SET, SIMNIDA.

the korean waitress said something i can not understand…and i just nod for serval times..

after 20 miniutes… the delicious has taken in front of me…  like the picture above…

mass of chicken….

at last, i asked some one can understand korean. they said that this is the lover’s set for 2 people… it’s actually too much for you…

hahaha

image111

second day morning… i wake up so early, although only 300 meter.. i do a rush to the classroom.

image112

another caption from ethiopian was annoucing something.

473285914860629602
