"This year, USTC and Kukkiwon will be hosting four Kukkiwon Instructor Seminars. Dates and locations are not final yet, but there will be at least one in California (perhaps one is southern region and one in northern region), one in Texas, and another on the east coast somewhere. The tentative date for the seminars is late April or May and they probably will be held on four consecutive weekends. The President of the Kukkiwon, GM LEE Seung Wan, feels that a policy of globalization and internationalization is of the utmost priority, and these Kukkiwon Instructor Courses is the first step. Other countries may also soon be hosting Kukkiwon Instructor Courses as well."
