Imperial students were invited down to participate in a dinner event to celebrate GM Rhee's 70th Birthday on Saturday 17th.
Joined by Master Hogan the group was seated together just yards from Master Rhee's table were we enjoyed the good food and wine. Master Rhee made an emotional speech about our Taekwon-Do family and remembered his history with our President Master Trevor Nicholls.
He recited how he took a young teenager (Trevor Nicholls) to the BBC Horizon show to demonstrate Taekwon-Do technique. He was particularly pleased to see our support and made a conscious effort to involve us completely in his celebration.
We would like to thank Grand Master Rhee and the UKTA for our invitation to a very enjoyable evening.
