15.4.2022 / Online international technical seminar with GM Hwang Ho-yong
From Řepy to the other side of the world
The title of the article sounds far-fetched, but it is true. On the weekend of April 9th and 10th, the large hall of the sports centre in Prague Řepi became the starting point of an international online technical seminar with Grandmaster Hwang Ho-yong. And the other side of the world? It had several outcomes - Japan, China, Malaysia, India, South Africa, UK, Grenada, USA.... And so we could go on :-) However, the important thing was the content, which was provided by Grandmaster Hwang Ho-yong and I, together with Master Martin Zamecnik, had the honour of assisting him and translating.

25.3.2022 / Photo shoot in the park
Sun, heat and taekwon-do
Some of the photographs are left to rest for a while and after some time we will return to processing them. This time it was like this with the photos we took in Komenský park during the Czech Republic Color Tape Championship in Ostrava. So check out the beautiful afternoon, now that the competition is over :-)
17.3.2022 / Sparring seminar with Tomaž Barada
Icon of sparring in the Czech Republic
While some weekends may seem very full and quite intense, the opportunity to see a taekwondo (and kickboxing) sparring icon's seminar in person will make them a little hell. But that "hell" is completely outweighed by the benefits of the seminar, which is led by Tomaž Barada. On the other hand, I gathered from the short chat that Tomaž is in a very similar position. A few days ago he returned from China, where he represented the Slovenian Olympic Committee at the Beijing Games. He then moved to Prague for a full-day kickboxing seminar, and on Sunday morning he stopped in Brandýs to take

15.3.2022 / Test for color belts
Over fifty higher belts
In mid-February, in the gym of Vybíralova Primary School in Černý Most, exams for higher technical levels - colour belts were held. The examinations were conducted by Grandmaster Hwang Ho-yong and after a careful examination in the individual gyms, 58 candidates appeared before him. All technical grades were represented and the pass rate was 100%. Grandmaster Hwang praised the comprehensive preparedness, which is high praise for the entire Sonkal coaching team! Congratulations to all those successful and we wish them a speedy learning programme for the next exams, which will be at the

18.3.2022 / Cup of Czech Taekwon-Do Federation
First at First
On Saturday 5th March the competition Cup of Czech Federation of Taekwon-Do ITF took place in Brno. The registration took place on Friday 4th so we arrived on that day in Brno. Our school was represented by 17 competitors. There were only two disciplines on this competition – patterns and sport sparring, and the competition system was each against each. Thanks to this the contestants had the opportunity to fight against a lot of opponents and so gain lots of new skills. Our competitors were fighting greatly and acting perfectly. Some of them even won the award as the best contestants i
14.3.2022 / Sonkal's taekwon-do camp
We are not bears
Taekwondists do not hibernate like the bears in winter, but train hard. Last year we could have dreamed of winter training, but this year it was a different story. Although the Omikron epidemic was at its peak in the Czech Republic and the list of participants was shortened on the day of departure, it was an extremely successful event. We divided the training sessions by technical bands and in the lower ones we welcomed a bunch of newcomers who started training a few months ago. Everyone interspersed the workouts as they saw fit - playing board games, reading, walking, or passively gaining
