    "Greatness, like a persistent breeze, passes quietly yet brings with it change. Like a breeze, Grandmaster Cho touched our lives, and moved on." -Tom Hart​
    I too have been touched by Grandmaster Cho, I had the privalige of him testing me when I was about 9 years old for my green belt (7th gup), all though I have only seen him a total of two different times in my life, I can say that I feel like I somewhat knew him from all that has been talked of him and stories of him from my head instructor (whom knew him well).​
    Ocasionally I can sense that my instructor is still grieving our loss silently, for he did lose a very close friend and a very important trubute to our school and organization. Sung Cho was more than just an instructor to us, he was like a loving father to us, who cared for each and every student like a father.​
    He wanted his students to be successful in life, not just in Tae Kwon Do, and he would personaly make sure of it too.​
    This is dedicated to in loving memory of,​
    Great Grandmaster Sung Dal Cho
