Sonkal particpated on festival of free time activities
We have been offered to be part of big leisure time festival called Ladronkafest. We had happily accepted. First demonstration was before noon and the other one during evening with colors of sunset. It is not worth of describing our superstar demonstration (if we won’t mention my not so superstar special techniques at the end), because you have to see it. Though there were some mistakes when I look at faces of people in audience, it was evident that Sonkal made it once again. We had five hours of free time bet

7.8.2009 / Summer camp with Master Hwang Ho-yong
This year’s summer camp was 7th in history and also seventh I have visited. Sklárna u Žihle is becoming traditional place for camp with our Master because of many advantages. Think about it: rope center (damn, how to say it in English properly?), laser game, swimming pond (yes, really pond, not pool ;o), small swimming pool, 3 sport grounds, gymnasium and pub together with nearly zero signal of all mobile operators (I found some signal on fifth floor balcony and men toilet in 3rd floor) is ultimate combination how to enjoy your taekwondo holida

Rolling on the floor
We attended another one Saturday seminary after two month break. Martin Svitek led it this time. He calls it "rolling". In fact, it is fighting on the floor. May be you think it is not Taekwon-do any more, but it is not true entirely. It is one of not very often practiced forms of hosinsool. Martin can do his groundwork pretty good. He says that somebody who practices Taekwon-do probably wouldn"t try to get the fight to the floor, but he can easily get there. He would be prepared to figure out this situation. He would try
