Almost all of the 38 movements of the pattern were approached with the degree of detail that characterizes him and highlights him in each IIC that he leads, but the unexpected part and one of the most applauded, without a doubt, was the historical narration related to the creation of the patterns, the names of the pioneers who contributed to the development of them and innumerable details that are not usually found in the available bibliography.
From the organization we want to thank all those who had the privilege of being able to attend live, as well as all those who sent emails and messages.Finally, we apologize to all those who, for reasons of the limit granted by the application used, had to be left out of the meeting.Yours in Taekwon-Do.
