British Taekwondo is delighted to announce that Kevin Jervis (of John Websters affiliated group ‘United Taekwondo Federation’) has received his Kukkiwon certificate following his successful 8th Dan grading in Korea a few months ago.
Kevin underwent testing at the World Headquarters for Taekwondo at the Kukkiwon in Seoul South Korea in accordance with Kukkiwon requirements for 8th Dan candidates.
Kevin started his training in 1972 under Korean Master Kwon, in his home town of Norwich. Kevin was active as both a Kyurogi and Poomsae competitor and became both British champion and GB team member in his competitive years.
Long term practitioners of Taekwondo are few and far between, so it’s quite an achievement for British Taekwondo to be able to boast of one who has attained Grandmaster status from within their ranks.
