Dennis & Michelle’s Wedding

2009 marks the blissful union of 2 of our Island Taekwon-Do Centre members.

Mr. Dennis Wan & Ms. Michelle Mok hosted their wedding dinner on 1st May 2009, inviting Master Sng & several of the ITC members. Upon arrival at the venue, we were greeted by the photo montage of the both of them on the screens. Several photos were taken at Taekwon-Do events. And they made us proud to have the couple associating the art on their important day. It goes to show the embracement of the art in their lives.

The members happily tucked in on the sumptuous courses of the dinner, while taking the opportunity to get together & catch up. As such, the members were more than just numbers in the club but friends & family in & out of Island Taekwon-Do Centre.

On behalf of Master Sng & the members of Island Taekwon-Do Centre, I would like to congratulate Dennis & Michelle on their marriage  & may they bear a young Taekwon-Doist soon!

Taekwon,
Jeremy Tan

Kenneth Tang Wee Cheow’s Wedding

2009 calls for a year of happiness for one of our Island Taekwon-Do Centre Black Belt member.

Mr. Kenneth Tang was happily married on 1st March 2009. Master Sng & several members of ITC were invited to his wedding dinner that evening. It was a day of bliss for Kenneth, as well as for Master Sng & the members to busk in the joy. We were treated to a sumptuous meal & throughout the entire night, Kenneth had came around to our table, chatting with us in midst of his busy evening schedule.

At many points, the emcee had made references to our table. Master Sng & some of the members were also invited up the stage for the “Yam Seng” session. We feel much honoured to be there; as much as how Kenneth related the same feeling he had to us throughout the night.

On behalf of Master Sng & the members of Island Taekwon-Do Centre, I would like to congratulate Mr. & Mrs. Kenneth Tang on their union of bliss & may they bear a young Taekwon-Doist soon!

Taekwon,
Jeremy Tan

Master Nicholls and Master Hogan’s visit to Singapore

On 30 April 2009, Master Trevor Nicholls (ITF Secretary General, 8th Degree Black belt), together with Master Jim Hogan (7th Degree Black belt), visited Singapore. It was a great pleasure to have this opportunity to meet with Master Nicholls once again and Master Hogan for the first time.

They arrived in the morning at Changi Airport and we proceeded to take them to the Dojang. Our Dojang was nothing new to Master Nicholls who has been here a couple of times. Whereas for Master Hogan, it was his first time visiting our Dojang.

Master Hogan is the author of his very own Taekwon-Do book and he presented it to Master Daniel Sng at the Dojang. He personally autographed the book for Master Sng and I’m sure it is indeed an honour for Master Sng to have the author here in Singapore.

After a long chat and some drinks at the dojang, it was soon lunch. We headed to Raffles Hotel for a nice lunch, treated by one of our black belts. It was a sumptuous meal, with our local Singaporean Chinese dishes as well as a nice spread of dim sum.

Some of our ITC members then brought Master Nicholls and Master Hogan around Singapore for sightseeing.

Time seemed to pass so fast especially when we were enjoying it. It was soon time for us to send them off at the airport. They were going to Kuala Lumpur for a seminar by President Choi Jung Hwa.

I enjoyed this day spent with Master Nicholls and Master Hogan. I look forward to them visiting Singapore once more, hopefully for a longer period to share with us their Taekwon-Do experiences.

Taekwon,
Maria Sng
