I just wanted to share a fantastic story for the Christmas time that our Taekwon-Do club, a proud member of Grand Master Choi''''s organization, was a part of this year.

On the week of December 10, our club in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada held our first annual "Board Breaking Week" where we were raising money for the Stollery Children''''s Hospital. For every $10 we raised, our students and instructors broke a board with the proceeds from the event all going to the  children''''s hospital. Grand total, the students and instructors at Tyr ITF Taekwon-Do in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada raised $1180 and we broke 118 boards in as many different ways as possible over a span of three class days. We had local news coverage and a wide-range of support for this event and I feel that nothing else exemplifies the virtues of martial arts and the Tenets of Taekwon-Do better than giving back to the most vulnerable among us who are in need, especially in this time of the year!
