We are very sad to report on the passing of Grandmaster Ruben Casanova, 8th Degree Black Belt. He was a student and instructor for Grandmaster Suk Jun Kim and displayed an incredible fierceness and dedication to Taekwon-Do. In training and in competition there was no one as focused and serious, but out of the ring and away from the do jang he was always ready with a joke, ready to make people laugh.
Please read Grandmaster Kim's announcement on the Taekwon-Do International website. There is nothing more we can add to his tribute, no way we could say it better.
Our sympathies go to his family and friends, and to all of his students.
Please note that calendar events are subject to change. Check back to confirm events.
