I am a black belt in Taekwondo and have attended a couple tournaments that consist of people in the area. Region 114 is the Iowa and Minnesota area.

Anyone here in Taekwondo? Past or present

Our family is involved in the World Tae Kwon Do Federation. My hubby is a 4th degree (master), oldest daughter is a 2nd degree, and other two daughters quit after attaining their 2nd degree junior black belt. I had to quit as a blue belt due to knee problems.

While the ATA and World TKD Fed. are different governing bodies, they are similar in many ways.

All in all, it's a great sport. A great way to work out frustrations and stress. grin

I trained threw out the eighties under 8th Dan Grand Master Joel Coles’s. He had moved around his dojo in Elk River for sevral years. He now has owned a place in Otsego where he still teaches.

I made it to brown belt red stripe before I moved on. I wished I would have kept in it. It was fun. I won some medals (bronze)in Twin Cities Tourney's, but to me it was gold back then grin. One I can remember was in Roseville.

My father was the one who got me started, but hurt him self in 84 or 85 and stopped going.

I still see Joel around town and thank him for all he taught me. Very nice guy!

That is fantastic!

I am planning on going back for my second degree here pretty quick but with the economy the way it is, money is tight right now.

Hmmmm, maybe I will be able to see some of you at tournaments!

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
