On the 24th April 2014, “Taekwondowon” will officially open and welcome the world Taekwondo community and sports lovers from around the world to a facility that is being positioned as a modern world heritage.
We are delighted to be able to invite a small delegation of GB Taekwondo VIPs to the opening ceremony, one of whom is Master Adrian Tranter, the current President who steered British Taekwondo through the Olympic Games, European Championships and more recently the WTF Grand Prix. Adrian commented “I am excited at the prospect of being a part of the historic opening day ceremony. The concept of ‘Taekwondowon’ will deliver a focal point for all the taekwondo family worldwide, especially for our younger participants. To embrace the philosophy of our art in such a wonderful environment will bring joy to everyone who visits, especially as the surrounding area provides such an inspirational setting”
“Taekwondowon” is………..2,314,000 m sq, ten times bigger than Seoul World Cup Stadium, ½ the area of Seoul’s Yeouido Island, two times the size of an 18-hole golf course and 70% the size of Central Park in New York. (To view the facility go to www.tpf.kr )
The park will be the global and spiritual home of the sport and will be a centre for education, training and research related to the world of Taekwondo. Sports people will be able to interact with a BODY, MIND & SPIRIT zones with different sections of the park cleverly designed to snake its way up a hillside toward to an ‘Observatory’ shaped like a piece of Korean pottery at the summit.
