Fun Foto of the Week!

This week's fun foto is of Master Mason Williams. He is probably about 5 or 6 years old, but look at all the trophies he's won!!! His father, Master Greg Williams, is one of Master Chong's longest student. He stands proudly behind his son.

If you have any fun photos that you'd like to submit, email them to me at junchong411[at] Enjoy!

Fun Foto of the Week!

While cleaning out the studio and my house, I stumbled across some old, fun photos of out beloved studio and all the students that have walked through our doors. I thought it'd be fun to post a new picture up on our blog whenever I find one to share in the fun and nostaglia!

This week's photo is a CLASSIC! Master Chong poses with brothers Simon and Phillip Rhee at the old 6401 Wilshire school location. This picture was taken circa 1977 when programs were only $15 a month!!
If you have any good photos that you'd like to submit, email them to me at junchong411[at] Enjoy!

WUMAO Weapons of the Orient Seminar

The World United Martial Arts Organization, sponsored by Ad Deliery, hosted our annual Weapons of the Orient seminar last Sunday May 3rd at the West Los Angeles location of Jun Chong Tae Kwon Do. Participants came from various schools including Abrigo Martial Arts, Chul Jin Martial Arts, Jun Chong TKD, and Jun Chong Martial Arts, totaling to 78 students at the seminar.

Three weapons were introduced in three sessions during the seminar: Nunchuks, Escrima, and Kendo. Everyone was able to practice each weapon first-hand, learning the basic forms and strikes of each weapon and how they are used in combat.

All participants received a free commemorative shirt as a gift for participating as well as a Certificate of Completion. At the end of the seminar, the masters each gave a brief demonstration of each weapon and students were able to purchase weapons and DVD's to practice at home.
