On the weekend of 27th & 28th January 2024, the Czech Taekwon‑Do Federation held the first ITF International Technical Seminar of the year, conducted by Grand Master Hwang Ho Yong (9th Degree), chairman of the ITF Technical and Education Committee. This presented a unique opportunity to learn the original Taekwon‑Do for dedicated ITF members in all countries of the world. The translation to English was provided by experienced Czech Masters Martin Zamecnik (7th Degree) and Ondrej Vrabel (7th Degree).

The first session (Saturday morning) started with the explanation of the composition of Taekwon‑Do, theory of power, basic terminology, and correct execution of fundamental techniques. That was followed by the demonstration of patterns Chon-Ji through Joong-Gun. The second session (Saturday afternoon) continued with patterns Toi-Gye through Ge-baek. Then, the system of sparring (three-step, two-step, one-step, semi-free and free) and self-defense was thoroughly explained and demonstrated. The third session (Sunday morning) was dedicated to patterns Eui-Am through Tong-Il. There was a lot of opportunities for Grand Master Hwang Ho Yong to answer various questions from the participants.

The online seminar was attended by more than 90 participants from Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Czechia, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Grenada, Ireland, Jamaica, Japan, Malaysia, Moldova, Nepal, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Scotland, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, the USA, and Zimbabwe. Also, GM Hwang would like to thank GM Brown, GM Chan, GM Hutchison, GM Miller and GM Mitchell for participating in this particular seminar.
