Teaching Taekwondo


My first ever attempt to teach Taekwondo at Sookmyung Women's University in Seoul Korea earlier this year. It was just a one off class. I realized I was not ready to be a Taekwondo teacher. The story behind me becoming assigned as their Taekwondo instructor was funny. They wanted to offer a 'Taekwondo experience' to their Korean language program students. However, the school was not prepared to pay any money to hire a professional instructor. Hence, I got roped in. I bet the students were shocked to find that their authentic Korean Taekwondo instructor had a white face!

Love the Ugg-like boots and the V-sign.

So very Korean.
