This 15th of June marks 10 years since the passing away of General Choi Hong Hi. We pause for a heartfelt homage and to thank his wonderful legacy.
I wish to share this reflection with you, for it has been quite a long while since his demise, during which our institution´s work capacity has been put to test, and become able to draw most international TKD practitioners to our ranks.
It is precisely the term line that I want to address: when our founder passed away, three lines became defined, which in order to identify themselves were called thus: Tran Trieu Quan Line, Chang Ung Line and Choi Jung Hwa Line. After the loss of dear GM Tran Trieu Quan, many members invoke my name as a new way to call our line. However, I think it is time we took what rightfully belongs to us and become known as the “Gen. Choi Hong Hi Line”.
Owing to the fact that our entity is not monarchic but that it is democratic and therefore time will force us to renew our Presidents (for no more than two periods are allowed), this would force us to successive changes in name to ratify our Line and moreover, because we know that we are heirs to the ITF legacy and our approach would fill our predecessors with pride.
We will simply employ this name whenever we need to refer to ourselves, as well as in the web or in a journalistic interview, we will do it in this way: ¨General Choi Hong Hi Line”; and it will be the best tribute possible to our Founder.

On behalf of myself and Polish Taekwon-Do Association I would like to invite you to the 19th Central Summer Taekwon-Do Camp to be held from 4th to 13th July 2014 in Biala Podlaska, Poland.
It is one of the biggest Taekwon-Do camps in Europe with a many years’ tradtion.
Every year many over 200 competitors from several dozen countries from all over the word came to practice Taekwon-Do in Poland. Except for Taekwon-do trainings on the highest level, the camp offers a lot of other attractions and it is comparatively cheap.
In attachment you will find the application and general information.
It will be a great opportunity to exchange the experience and to prepare for the World Cup 2014 in Jamaica and the European Cup 2014 in Budapest, Hungary.
More information about the camp you will find under the link http://www.itfeurope.org/NL2014-02-26.html
