2016 Australian World Champion

March 28th, 2017

As our national body, STA/AT declined to assist our 2016 World Champion Poomsae Player Barry Jordan obtain his jump Kukkiwon Jump 6th Dan Certificate so our Victorian Koryo Taekwondo Centre decided to apply for him. Well it took some 3 months for our club to process the necessary documentation for Barry to receive his well-deserved Kukkiwon 6th Dan Certificate.
Last night we held a special Presentation evening for Barry and his lovely wife Shirley so that he could receive the recognition he deserved being Australia’s first World Champion Poomsae Player.
Barry was presented with his 6th Dan Kukkiwon Certificate along with a Special Trophy to commemorate his amazing achievement. Barry’s wife Shirley also received a gift for being such a supporting and understanding wife.
We must thank our Koryo Instructors and our members for making the night quite special for Barry and Shirley.
Special thank you to Eric Phan for looking after Barry and Shirley whilst they were in Melbourne.
Also thank you to our friend Mr Hassan Iskandar for organising the letter from the WTF confirming Barry result and Kukkiwon Australia and Kukkiwon Korea for their assistance in processing Barry’s 6th Dan Kukkiwon Certificate.
