ET AV DE FØRSTE intervjuer av master Cho.
Ble gjort våren 1996.
Enkle spørsmål vi i tkd-miljøet var opptatt av den gang..
Og likevel nå når dette skrives ned på nettsted, 40år senere;
Er mye like aktuellt!
Grandmaster, You created the TTU. Is this in concurrence to the wft or other Kwan?
Not at all. We are all innside the wtf. ttu are an org inside.
Do you feel something is wrong whit the existing organisasjons?
Not wrong. But i feel the spirit of TKD, suffered under the efforts to become an olymic disiplin.
Q- Are you against the fact , that tkd is an olympic discipline, and will be..?
But we must be carefully not to loose the old values of our tkd by concentrating to much efforts to kyrurgi. Tkd are so much moore then tecknicks.
What do you mean by «the old values»?
Caretaking of humans healt by disiclipin build on tkd’etikette. As told, to understand over taekwondo , ouer DO..
we must always try develoup as humans…by practicing tradisjonelle way of tkd. Its lots of philosofhi to thing over. Never take away basic you learn.
You have had great success over the last years in the Scandinavian countries.
Do you plan on expand the TTU outside the nordic countrys?
We decided this year on our general annual meeting to cooperate with a German club, the TV Seulberg in the Rhein/Main area.

Many times. But not serious problem. Its many ways of learning and xplaining.
