Grandmaster JC Kim – a brief history

Master Kim has assisted our Founder General Choi Hong Hi since the beginning of Taekwon-Do  and the ITF.

Master Kim played a key role in the creation of ITF.  In 1966 he was in fact a founding member of the ITF.

Master Kim is a pioneer of South East Asia and North America shortly after GM Joon Rhee.

He has helped many South American countries become a TKD  power house and is renembered by us as the person who realized Gen Choi’s wish in the early days:

Grand Master Kim hosted the First ITF World  Championships in 1974 … one of many difficult periods in the ITF history.

Taekwondo Olympics 2016

Olympic Taekwondo 2016

So as another installment of Olympic Taekwondo comes to a conclusion, it’s time for us to once again reflect on the bigger picture that is Taekwondo.

Every 4 years the same debates roll out regarding the presence of Taekwondo in the Olympics, and many self-proclaimed traditionalists will testify that the Taekwondo on public view to the millions is not the martial art as the Founder intended.

On the flip-side, those who are indeed heavily invested in the Olympic version do not even hear  or regard the arguments that resonate from the outside, as they strive to win Gold for their country.

So how can two groups of people have such polarized views on the Olympic version of Taekwondo, and one wonders whether other sports suffer the philosophical same divide.

When Taekwondo was first included in the Seoul Olympics back in 1988 as a demonstration sport, and then went on in 1996 to be a full medal sport, it was regarded as a major coup for the organizations who were involved, and the death knell for those who weren’t.

Just as we have been every four years before, the end of another Olympic campaign leaves us with more questions than answers.

The future of Taekwondo

But has it panned out that way all these years later,  what has become of the public perception of Taekwondo in 2016, as we get engulfed by the popularity of MMA and UFC ?

Concerns about the standard of competition, the range of techniques used, the attractiveness to a television and live audience and hence the appeal to potential lucrative sponsors leave Taekwondo delicately poised in terms of its future as an Olympic  sport.

Have Taekwondo organizations, and their member schools flourished since the inclusion of Taekwondo as an Olympic Sport ? What value was derived from the millions of dollars each nations government pumped int the sport version fo Taekwondo ?

With a large group on anti-Olympic practitioners defending their traditional, or original martial art, why do these same organizations still pin their hopes on one day being included in something they so vehemently oppose ?

Is our main concern about which organization is represented, and hence reaps the rewards of government and corporate backing, or is our primary concern what the sport/art actually looks like in the public domain ?

At this juncture nothing should be taken away from the countless hours of hard work done by the athletes and coaches themselves, as with any other Olympic Sport, they have given their all to represent their country with great pride and they only compete withing the rules that govern the sport.

At the end of each games we reflect the positives and negatives of Taekwondo’s inclusion in the Olympic schedule.

Passing of Grandmaster Tompkins

tompkins 2 tompkins

Saddened to hear of the passing today of Grandmaster John Tompkins. He was always on hand with a word of encouragement and support, I found him fascinating to talk to and appreciated his ability to look you in the eye and give it to you straight without the sugar coating.

A man of his convictions and not afraid to call it as he saw it. My condolences to his family, members and close friends. The World is poorer for having lost you but grander for having had you my friend. Respect – Master Michael Muleta

From the ITF administration page:

Grand Master John Tompkins had an enormous passion for martial arts and Taekwon-Do in particular. He started as a young boy and stayed active in Taekwon-do throughout his life. He was respected and loved by many all over the world. One of his proudest moments was when President Choi Jung Hwa promoted him to the rank of 9th degree black belt at the 2014 World Championships in Rome, Italy. His passion could be fiery at times but it was his love and commitment to keeping Taekwon-do pure that drove him. He was a man who lived and died by his principles.

The 2016 United ITF New Zealand National Championships were held in Wellington, New Zealand on Saturday 11th June.

The following day saw Master Michael Muleta conduct a Seminar and Degree Testing for United ITF NZ and United ITF Australia Black Belts.

The National Champs saw participants travel from Across New Zealand, including Wellington and the South Island as well as a large contingent from Australian areas including Melbourne, Geelong, Mildura and Millicent.

Thoroughbred Taekwon-Do was represented by Master Michael Muleta, as an offical with Justin Chin and Anna Blake as competitors.

The competition featured a range of competitors from young first-timers through to past and present (and possibly future) International Taekwon-Do Federation World Champs. With some high quality contests the crowd were treated to a very entertaining day indeed.

From our club’s point of view, we had some very good results with Anna Blake taking out the best over all Junior Female award, winning her sparring and patterns convincingly, which will serve as valuable preparation for the upcoming ITF World Championships in England next month.

Justin Chin also continued his strong form, winning a silver medal in senior black belt patterns in a very high standard final against Kye Todd, with both in the national team for next month’s international event.

On the Sunday, Master Michael Muleta conducted a seminar including work on technical content, movement dynamics, kicking drills and some motivational and philosophical content. The session was well received and students preparing for the upcoming degree testing received some valuable last minute pointers.

The degree testing was quite involved and ultimately saw the promotion of Mark Elliot (3rd Degree), Kylee Cusin (3rd Degree) and Conner Melaugh (2nd Degree).

The Championships will be held as a biennial event with New Zealand supporting Master Muleta’s Australian events in the alternate years.
