Ever wanted to perform Joon Gun at Ahn Joon Gun Hall, practice Do San at Do San Park, party at Everland Amusement Park in Seoul, do Won Hyo in front of the monument built for the man who introduced Buddhism to the Silla Dynasty in 686 AD, pose your side kick on the side of a mountain thousands of feet in the air, and perform Dan Gun in front of the monument to the legendary founder of Korea in 2333 BC on Jeju Island all on one trip?
I bet you didn’t know you could!
Sorry for the run-on question there, but I couldn’t pack it all into one concise question any other way. And that doesn’t even cover all of it!
Tul Tour is an amazing program that should be on every ITF practitioners bucket list regardless of your organization! The program is put together by ITF Headquarters Korea and is run by the Tul Tour International Coordinator Master Zibby Kruk.
Tul Tour isn’t just one tour either. They offer both Colored Belt Programs and Master Programs.
With each program you’ll be accompanied by renowned Masters and Instructors that have previously been directly instructed by the founder of Taekwon-Do, General Choi, Hong Hi.
You’ll get a heavy dose of cultural enlightenment visiting historic places in various locations throughout South Korea as well as participate in cultural activities to better understand Korean life.
And of course, you will get technical instruction and theoretical lectures on patterns while having the opportunity to practice them in the locations around Korea that are associated with Tul history!
This is a unique training experience and one that should not be missed. For more information you can visit http://tultour.org/ to set up your tour!
