I hope the spring is treating you well, and that the fresh air is invigorating your spirit. As the seasons change, we must also continue to move forward with our life’s journey. Of course the past year has been a challenge, and the many governmental lockdowns have inhibited our capacity to gather in-person, yet we recognize that the strength of our community and the bonds of our brotherhood propel us to expand to greater heights.
It is unfortunate that international travel and group events are still under significant restrictions preventing us from another year of our traditional annual Hwa Rang Do summer gathering in person. However, it is essential that we still gather together and that we will still connect this year through the digital world! Yes, this summer of 2021 we will be holding a Digital Championship Tournament, special live interactive seminars with Kuksanim & Dojoonim, and also have a celebration of annual awards, tournament results, and a special highlight of Italy’s 20th Anniversary!
