Subject: FW: Kyorugi Coach RCC Process – Clarification


If you have applied for a Kyorugi Coach RCC during the initial roll out period from 4 December 2016 to 28 March 2017 you do don’t have to re-apply or pay any fees for your RCC application.

It is taking some time to process RCC applications that were submitted through this period and we are only half way processing them. Be patient. Once all applications are processed you will be issued a new membership card with your accreditations on the back of the card. If you have applied for an RCC already I will contact you directly if additional information is required. Please refrain from emailing to ask how your application is progressing as it is overloading the admin office and slowing down our ability to progress the RCC approval process.

Yesterday’s correspondence was for members who wish to apply for Kyorugi RCC from the 17th May 2017 onwards

How lucky were some of us as Kukkiwon Australia held the Breaking events after the Poomsae events. As along with a couple of other competitors I hurt my my foot when doing the turn kick break and would not have been able to compete in Poomsae.

2017 Kukkiwon Australia Hanmadang

April 11th, 2017

2017 kukkiwon aust 2The Koryo Taekwondo Centre in Victoria would like to congratulate Kukkiwon Australia on the way they organised and managed their first Australian Hanmadang. The respect given by Kukkiwon Australia to all Master Instructors and competitors was the best I have seen for a long time. I now have a better idea of what the Kukkiwon means by improving the education of Taekwondo people around the world. I feel that the Kukkiwon wishes to focus more on the Martial Art side of Taekwondo culture which has deteriorated over the past years due to Taekwondo becoming a Olympic Sport.

2017 Kukkiwon 2 Our Koryo Team of 5 Competitors came home with 5 Gold and 4 Silver after a full day of Poomsae, Sparring and Breaking.

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.
