Birthday Ronald (2 august 2009) Ronald Verheuvel 40 year
Upcoming events this year:
· Interview about Hapkido, Jungki Kwan and Mu Do Kwan in local newspapers. (when I return from Korea)
· Mu Do Kwan exists 12 year (on 23 september 2009)
· Korean evening (Korean cooking)
The last time I informed you that we had about 45 members. I am very happy to say that we still have 45 members now, but that type of member in the adult Hapkido class is changing slowly. This is a direct result of the changes I made in the adult Hapkido training. And that’s a good thing!
- 30 adult Hapkido members
- 15 children Hapkido members.
At this moment there are 6 adult Hapkido members who also follow the Kuhapdo lessons. I found a Korean shop in Rotterdam, about 30 km. from Hellevoetsluis where I live. It’s a small shop but they sell a lot of Korean products. So now I can drink a cup of Korean “In Sa” every day. Like in Daegu.
I talked with the Korean shop owner about Mu Do Kwan, Jungki Kwan and my annual trip to the Jungki Headquarters in Daegu. It was a very nice conversation. Since there are not so many Korean shops in the Netherlands, a lot of Korean people come to that shop. The shop owner said that, if I want to make promotion for Jungki Kwan I am welcome to put a poster on the door. In this way I hope the Korean community in the Netherlands will get to know Jungki Hapkido and Kuhapdo.
