No break

My instructor told me yesterday that the board-breaking part of the 2nd Dan test at the Kukkiwon has now been cancelled over the winter months, since previously it had led to some broken fingers brought on by the sub-zero temperatures which test takers have to wait for hours in. Ahem...Could they perhaps just cancel the sparring part, too?

This week sees another event at the Kukkiwon (assuming it hasn't been moved as with the Hanmadang). I think it's the Korean national team tryouts. I saw it last year. There was some high grade sparring going on there. As yet, I'm in 2 minds whether to venture out there this week or not.
