Dear Masters, Instructors and Students of the ITF,

At the world championships I was heavy injured and I had to spent some days in a hospital and could leave Korea on July, 17th.
Today I feel really fine and I will not have any follwing problems. I need some weeks to recover completely.

I want to say thanks to the medics at the ring for their super fast help and their correct decision to take me to a hospital.
They really made a great job.

I want to say thanks to Mr. Tae Geun Rim,  the doctor in the hospital who threated me well and had an "eye" on me all the the time.

I want to say thanks to Mr. Oscar Oh who was anxious about me and very helpful.

I want to say thanks to all competitors for their wishes for a speey recovery.

I want to say thanks to Master Choi and all the other Masters for their sympathy.

And at last I want to say thanks to my family for their support.

See you all in Canada


Olaf Braemer
