World Champion Taekwondo held this year’s annual Black Belt Convention at the Woodbridge Country Club on Saturday May 14th. Black Belts, ranging from 1st Dan to 6th Dan, and support staff from all World Champion Taekwondo locations throughout Connecticut came together in celebration of their achievements, dedication to the sport, and adherence to the key values that are the cornerstones of its philosophy. These are: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and determination. Special awards were given by Grand Master Sejin Park, President of World Champion Taekwondo and the Connecticut State Taekwondo Association, for recognition of outstanding service, continued support of the 2016 Connecticut State Championships and the art of Taekwondo. Some local recipients included Amelia Taddei, Anthony Taddei, Judit Farkis, Amar Sinha, Jacqueline Walsh, and Sasha Medovnikov. Entertainment was provided by the Hypnosis featuring Shayne Fischman, Black Belt 3rd Dan and Amity Graduate, along with K-Pop music and dance featuring MJ Choi’s I Love Dance troop from New York City. A wonderful evening of fun was enjoyed by all.
