So Why Isn’t President Trump Being Given An Honorary Taekwondo Black Belt?

        The WTF as it was known before they went PC and changed it to World Taekwondo has often given out honorary black belts to many famous people and politicians. Back in 2009 President Barrack Hussein Obama was given an honorary black belt in Taekwondo by then Korean president Lee Myung-bak. What did he do to earn it? Basically the same thing he did to earn his Nobel Peace Prize: nothing.

President Trump on the other hand has only done more than any president in history to bring a REAL peace and unity to North Korea and South Korea.

Even the Kukkiwon idiots like Conan O’Brien was given a black belt by the Kukkiwon in 2016.

Russian President Putin was given an honorary 9th dan black belt as I mentioned before on this blog. But he at least is a martial artist and promotes martial arts in his country (even if I do not like him and do not trust him). What pisses me off is how they are ignoring the historic progress that American President Donald Trump has actually done for Korea. The first time since the Korean war we see an actual chance for peace in the Korean peninsula. If it was not for President Trump, Kim Jung Eun would not be talking to South Korea and talking about denuclearization.  It is an insult and outrageous that President Trump was not also given an honorary black belt rank when he went to Korea. What a joke the Korean president is and you can tell that there is a swamp that needs to be drained in Korea just as is in the United States within government there.

President Trump is a fan of combat sports “bigley.” He has been around in the boxing scene and MMA scene for a long time as a fan and supporter. He was a supporter of MMA since it’s early days and UFC.

The current president, Moon Jae-in is a leftist shill and a globalist. He most likely does not like Trump and does not want to give him the credit he deserves. The WT and Kukkiwon are very selective in who they give out honorary dan ranks to. It is obvious it is pure politics which have drained down into how the Kukkiwon and the WT are run currently. Instead of being objective they side with whoever supports their weak and watered down agenda. This is why Taekwondo is always being used to further a globalist agenda and believes they can help create a 1 world society and Taekwondo is somehow at the forefront of this. What I do not get is that so many Koreans are extremely nationalistic and biased about their nation, but have a facade of being inclusive. I imagine it is whatever benefits their government and leaders to give them accolades and money. Prestige within the world stage and power. But really inside they are Korean nationalists, yet are soft on communism and socialism. This is why President Trump is being ignored as a serious candidate for an honorary black belt. In my opinion he deserves and honorary 9th dan since these are not actually given out for any martial arts merit and the fact he got North Korea and South Korea to get together seriously and plan out a path to peace and unity. No other U.S. president was able to do that. Trump is more of a fighter than Obama ever was.

Chinese Taekwondo Students Visit Korea 

        Last week for 3 days Chinese students in 3 separate group came to the Chun Ji Hoe Dojang in Bucheon to experience Taekwondo from Master Jeong. Every group went through some basics and saw poomsae demonstrations by Master Jeong’s students and a mini-bunhae demo where Master Jeong showed some self defense techniques. The first group brought some older students with them who were part of a school Taekwondo team. They performed some poomsae for us and it was a great time. The 2nd group had less people and more children and they were new to Taekwondo and learned some basic punching. The last group were all white belts and middle school aged students. The cultural exchange was great and hopefully these kinds of thing can make a positive impression to foreigners who train in Taekwondo, especially Chinese martial artists. Koreans were able to have a positive experience with Chinese people and promote some Korean culture. Since I was there too I was able to represent America to the Chinese and hopefully made a positive impact to these young minds about what a American is like.

        These kinds of things are great. Politics aside you can create friendships and hopefully the future Chinese generations will have fond memories of an American as well as Koreans. Peace and friendship through martial arts.

        The first day unfortunately I had no video footage. I should have brought my camera or used my phone to record. That day I performed Pal Gwe Yeuk Jang. Oh well, but the second day I was able to capture video. I performed Pal Gwe Sa Jang:

Day 3 was the largest amount of people where the dajang had to cram 85 white belt students into itself with hardly any space to move around. Amazing! Watch the Chinese white belt kids practice the basic punches:

The 3 days were a great time. I am blessed to have experienced this and be in Korea to hep promote Taekwondo and the martial arts to other countries. It is great to see Chinese people training an loving our martial art.
