    As many of you know, a few months ago, 2000 US Olympic Coach, Grand Master Young In Cheon, took a group of kids (including my daughter) to Russia for the competition experience of a lifetime.

    He has been doing these sorts of things a lot in the past few years and now he is offering another incredible opportunity:

    If you are interested, I would strongly suggest that you contact GM Cheon's daughter, Ann, ASAP.

    Just an FYI a Facebook page, much like the 1 I created when Grand Master Cheon took a team to Russia a few months ago, has been created to follow all the activities of the team that is going to Korea at the end of the month for the Korea Open.

    If you are on Facebook, I would encourage you all to join the group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=103365186386204 and cheer for Team USA.

    Two members of the team are from MI and I am happy that these young people will have an opportunity to travel to Korea and compete. It is really quite exciting!

    Should be a lot of fun for the youngsters. I hope they do well. I got to see the Korean high school teams here a couple years ago. They were quite impressive. Good luck to all our young people from the US.

    There is a Sr Team + a couple of additional Srs and a male and female Jr team. The official Sr team is the winning team from the International TKD Fest last spring and their expenses are paid for. There was an open invitation for anyone else, Jr or Sr that wanted to come along as long as they paid their own airfare.

    Hope they send an athlete liaison to watch the Juniors! Wonder if Sergey Pak will be there to Greet them like he did with the California team that went to Russia?

    Common sense got the best of me. Deleted

    I would simply advise you, Ms. Coyle, to be very careful with your suggestive comments, especially where my family is involved.

    You know I really think your losing it! MangoMan!

    I think all International trips should have an athlete liaison to watch the Juniors, Read www.recoiltkd and maybe you will get it!

    Now Tell me who is going on this trip with the team??? Would that not be Young In Cheon? Who met him and team at the Airport in Russia?? Would that not be Sergy Pak??? Do you know something we don't?? and that is what has caused your outburt towards me?

    It's okay, I forgive you.

    This isn't the place for such things. If either of you have any issues with each other, then you can discuss it in a civil manner via PM. If that doesn't work, then use the ignore feature.

    That being said...

    ATTENTION ALL USERS:

    Please keep the conversation civil, and on-topic.
