The 30th Annual Oriental Martial Arts College – Moogongryu Martial Arts Summer Camp of 2013 was EPIC!
Spectacular Curricula, Energy, and Spirit were seen and felt throughout camp and in all of our great athletes!
Not only did we have an AWESOME camp, we had a chance to witness a Historical Event at this camp’s
Moogongryu Main Rank Promotion Test!
That is, the Honorable Belt Presentation ceremony of not one, not two, but FOUR Grandmasters in the OMAC Moogongryu school.
Supreme Grandmaster Byung Jik Ro, one of the original founding fathers of Taekwondo Martial Arts – Founder of Songmookwan Taekwondo in South Korea – 1944, and instructor of Senior Grandmaster Joon P. Choi (now Supreme Grandmaster Choi) has promoted the following Grandmasters for their dedication in their lifelong commitment to Martial Arts:
* Senior Grandmaster Joon P. Choi was promoted and ceremonially presented with his 10th Degree Black Belt, and became Supreme Grandmaster!!!! Truly an amazing achievement from a lifetime of learning and teaching the Martial Arts not only as a sport but as an art and a way of life.
*Grandmaster Young P. Choi was promoted and ceremonially presented with his 9th Degree Black belt, and became Senior Grandmaster!
*Grandmaster Ho B. Kim was also promoted and ceremonially presented with his 9th Degree Black belt, and became Senior Grandmaster!
*Grandmaster Kwang H. Kim, currently 8th Degree Black Belt, was offered his promotion but has humbly and respectfully asked to wait until he is further prepared to receive this high honor; however, he was formally and ceremonially presented with a fresh, and shiny new 8th Degree Black Belt, the rank which he was presented/promoted to in 1996.
