and i dont believe a word of this
i believe Al Cole believes it
but i think it is a gigantic fairy tale
This actually belongs in the other thread.
I should believe it, what I wrote is from my 10 years of research into the subject. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) agrees with the findings of my research.
[h=3]Decision 6.COM 13.44[/h]The Committee (… decides that [this element] satisfies the criteria for inscription on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, as follows:
- R.1: Taekkyeon is a traditional martial art that has been passed from generation to generation and promotes cooperation and solidarity among its practitioners;
- R.2: Inscription of Taekkyeon on the Representative List could improve the visibility of similar martial arts around the world as a part of intangible cultural heritage;
- R.3: A wide range of safeguarding measures includes raising awareness, research and financial support to the master and assistants to encourage transmission;
- R.4: The nomination process has benefited from the participation of key institutions and practitioners and they have provided their free, prior and informed consent;
- R.5: At the request of the groups and individuals concerned, Taekkyeon was designated in 1976 as Important Intangible Cultural Heritage by the Intangible Cultural Heritage Division of the Cultural Heritage Administration.
Of course you are welcome to present proof that UNESCO and my research is incorrect. Good luck.
