Some Words from Master Changs Pupils
SANGROK World Taekwondo Academy Family
(Old SANGROK family Board)


Master Henrik S. Hunstad

The SANGROK gym has become like a second home for me. I'm very privileged to have experienced the training and the spirit of SANGROK. The way Master Chang has taught me, has given me an opportunity to learn high quality Taekwondo. SANGROK represent not only taekwondo to me, but also the best part of Korean culture. I feel honored to call Master Chang my master and friend. Anyone that wants to experience Korean culture at it's best and wishes to train the best Taekwondo, should visit the SANGROK World Taekwondo Academy. The way of Master Chang's taekwondo teaching is a blend of traditional taekwondo and Olympic taekwondo. If you are a beginner, an instructor, competitioner etc, SANGROK gym and Master Chang has something to teach everyone.

Sincerely,

Master Henrik S. Hunstad,
International Master Instructor, 6th Dan
Director of SANGROK Norway.

 The Sinwol 3 dong Football club celebrated the first day




To: Sangrok family,

As you may or may not know, Master Chang not only loves Taekwondo, but he also has another passion: Football!
Football in Korea is a huge sport, to an extent Taekwondo and Football may be equal in popularity. Football clubs are evident all over Seoul, Master Chang having joined one of them.
For those who have not had the pleasure of staying at Sangrok World Taekwondo Academy, one of the first things you learn is that Sundays is Master Changs football day.
The Sinwol 3 dong Football club celebrated the first day of the new football year on the 21st of January. To celebrate, the club invited not only the football players, but also their families as well. Fortunately enough, Roberto and I (the current students staying at Sangrok Academy) were also invited.
Arriving at 10am to the local school football pitch, the first thing I noticed was a small traditional shrine that was assembled. It consisted of a whole pig, its head resting on a short table. Surrounding its head was Dok (traditional Korean cake, always eaten at such occasions), Makgeolli ( Korean wine, and Master Changs favourite drink!), a football and servings of fruit. I soon learned that each of these signify something special, the pig being the most important. The pig apparently brings good luck and good health, so that this year they will have success and no injuries to any of the players.
Once the ceremony began, small groups of players bowed in front of the shrine, offering money and placing it in the ears or mouth of the pig and then drinking Makgeolli. After the bowing ended the pig was taken away and cut up, then made into a soup or barbecued to be enjoyed by all.
The people of this area and Koreans in general, have very kind hearts. Even though they are a small local club, playing at the local school, they have mended the schools football posts and bought new nets, so that both can enjoy the game of football to the fullest. Also, on this special day, the orphanage was invited, so many young orphans had the chance to play football and enjoy the food and festivities of the day. It was definitely a Korean tradition worth experiencing!.
