Barack Obama Taekwondo?

I dont know how my google search lead me to Barack Obama practicing Taekwondo but I found it quite interesting to say the least.

In 2009 when Obama visited South Korea for the first time as president, he was awarded an honorary Black Belt.  Research a little more and you will find that he actually practiced Taekwondo from 2001 until 2004 and earned a green belt but some sites claim he went all the way to blue belt. 

South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak personally chose the gift in recognition of Obama's past interest in the Korean martial art, as reported on the World Taekwondo Federation website.

Obama seems pretty pumped about his new achievement



President Obama and Lee trade moves as he is awarded his new Black Belt!!

It's time to give

On December 12th, 2011 I realized we needed to implement our annual Authentic Toy Drive, again.  Last year I think we had about 30 toys and this year we would like to at least beat that.  So my idea was that anyone who brings a toy will receive membership to our facilities FREE.  As you may already know, we offer over a dozen different types of programs consisting of Martial Arts, Fitness and lots of fun.  These programs are enjoyed by both children and adults.  We hope to reach out to as many children who may not receive a toy and at the same time introduce people to the world of Fitness and Martial Arts.

All the money in the world means nothing if you don't have your health (physical and moral)

The Christmas season is upon us and we want to give as much as possible. Authentic Taekwondo in conjunction with Seibukan Karate and Invest in Fitness have embraced this charitable season and want to reach out to as many individuals as possible. All you have to do is, bring in a toy and we will give you two weeks, free access to any program, beginning January 9th. Our quality programs are safe, effective and fun for adults and children. So bring in a toy and feel good morally and after a great workout, feel even better physically.
We offer the following programs for a new unwrapped toy:

This year, we will be supporting the CP24 Chum Christmas Wish, as it is a great organization with a history of charity and giving. Please spread the word and invite your friends to give and receive this holiday season.
