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.

A Korean Abroad: Master Moon of Andorra

With territory of just 468 sq.km high in Europe's Pyrenees Mountains
and a population of only 80,000, the Principality of Andorra is one
of the smallest countries in the world. But in that tiny mountain
nation is a Korean Taekwondo master who has been training the locals
in the Korean sport for thirty years. Moon Dong-geun, or Master Moon
as he is called, is a minor celebrity in Andorra; locals greet him
warmly as he walks through the streets. And thanks to Moon, the
Andorrans have developed an appreciation of the country they know as
"Corea."

The story begins three decades ago. In June 1977, Moon, then just 25
years old, was finishing up an eight-month stint as a Taekwondo
trainer in Barcelona, Spain. "A student in Spain told me that it'd be
easy to build up a Taekwondo school in Andorra because the sport was
totally unknown there. At the time there were at least 50 Korean
Taekwondo teachers in Spain, so I took a big risk and jumped into
this virgin market."

In February 1978, Moon opened a small, 150-sq.m gym in Andorra. "It
wasn't long after Bruce Lee had died so there was a lot of interest
in the sport. I had 70 people signed up just one month after I
opened." Moon has since trained more than 2,000 students, among them
the son of former Prime Minister Marc Forne Molne. Every year the
police force of the Spanish city of Seo De Urgel sends about 20
trainees to learn the martial art from Moon.

"Andorrans tend to be wary of outsiders since it's a small mountain
country. It wasn't easy to gain their trust. I didn't drink because I
didn't want to create a bad impression of Korea or Taekwondo. Rumors
spread quickly here because it's so small." Married to a local woman,
he now has a daughter, Nadia, and a son, Carlos, who trains at Moon's
gym. Moon has hung on to his Korean nationality, and some Korean
customs. "Every day before class, I make my students salute the
Korean flag. I tell them they should show respect to the country that
started the sport they like." Moon has recently appeared on Andorran
TV to help publicize the sport.

Ernest is an Andorran civil servant who has been training with Moon
for 25 years. "Moon is a very considerate teacher," Ernest says. "He
teaches each student according to their individual abilities. Master
Moon is like an ambassador representing Korea in Andorra."
