On April 10 2010, Grandmaster Park Jong Soo,  hosted the 55th Taekwon-Do birthday celebration banquet in Toronto Canada.
 
Special guest of honour at this prestigious event was Grandmaster Choi Jung Hwa, President of ITF.
Pres. Choi accompanied by Master Parm Rai arrived at the banquet hall and were greeted by Masters, instructors and guests.
Grandmaster Park accompanied Pres. Choi to the head table where he was received by other distinguished guests.
Once everyone was settled, Grandmaster Park stood up and began his speech.  He emphasized that Canada was the second home for Gen. Choi as he spent most of his years in Canada. He told everyone that since Gen. Choi lived in Canada he will host Gen. Choi’s memorial cup as an annual event.
 
Grandmaster Park during his speech told everyone how he was delighted even more as the son of the founder of Taekwon-Do and ITF President was amongst us.
 
The evening continued with a magnificent display of Korean food which everyone enjoyed.
Pres. Choi was then introduced by Master George Vitale as the President of the ITF.
 
Pres. Choi stood up and spoke about how he was delighted to be amongst all the people present.  He thanked everyone for continuing the teachings of his father, Gen. Choi.  He thanked everyone for their endless work  in Taekwon-Do. At the end of his speech he received a standing applause.
 
In all the evening was very pleasant seeing many faces of the past and renewing and strengthening of many friendships.
It was an honour to be there.
