Club Event Report – Grandmaster Kang Poomsae Seminar in Harrogate

Report from Grandmaster Kang’s International Online Poomsae Seminar.

7th Dan Taekwondo Master and founder of Harrogate K.R.Ali Taekwondo Academy Kambiz R Ali recently held a Taekwondo seminar with leading Poomsae expert and 9th Dan Kukkiwon Grandmaster Ik Pil Kang.

The seminar provided participants – ranging in age from 10 to 67 years old – with the opportunity to undergo in-depth practice and study into the basics and fundamentals of Taekwondo Poomsae and its various techniques and their application. A total of 31 practitioners from 19 different countries took part in the online event over the weekend of the 5th and 6th of March.

Hyesoo Kang, Grandmaster Kang’s daughter, assisted in the teaching and demonstration of application of various Taekwondo techniques, and performance of various forms.

The event was the sixth online seminar held in Harrogate by Master Kambiz and Grandmaster Kang since the start of the pandemic in 2020. The duo was delighted with the smooth running of the event and pleased with continued positive response from participants.

Master Kambiz said, “I would like to thank my dear friend and teacher Grandmaster Kang and his daughter Hyesoo for once again delivering such a phenomenal online Taekwondo seminar. I am pleased to still see so many guests from such a large range of different countries still joining us online to train with us and learn new knowledge and skills from Grandmaster Kang. Now that the Covid-19 lockdown has been lifted, I am sure it will not be long before we hold a seminar at an indoor venue again soon.

Master Kambiz and his team are preparing to hold their home Taekwondo Championships in Harrogate, with The Harrogate Mayor Cup Poomsae Championships taking place for the sixth time. The event will be held at Rossett Sports Centre on Sunday 27th March.

Master Kambiz said, “We expect the event to bring in around 350-400 competitors from across the UK to Harrogate, The Harrogate Mayor and Mayoress should also be visiting the event to support the event and celebrate its return for the 6th time.”
