Date: 31 March 2012, Venue: Singapore Flyer
Saturday 31st March 2012 marked the 20th anniversary of the Island Taekwon-Do Centre (‘ITC’) in Singapore. This momentous occasion was held at the Singapore Flyer and attended by ITC members (both past and present) joined by their families and friends. For everyone’s enjoyment, the event consisted of a wide selection of food, live entertainment, raffle and a slide show of the Taekwon-Do journeys taken by Master Daniel Sng and numerous ITC members.
Over the last two decades, the ITC has achieved a number of milestones which include:
- Hosting the first and only ITF Taekwon-Do international instructors’ seminar in Singapore conducted by our founder, Grandmaster General Choi Hong Hi;
- Producing Singapore’s first ITF Taekwon-Do world championship medallist; and
- Inviting ITF President, Grandmaster Choi Jung Hwa, to host the first masterclass seminar in Singapore;
Further, this forthcoming June, the ITC may be blessed by a visit from ITF President, Grandmaster Choi Jung Hwa – what a year for this to happen.
Over the years Master Daniel Sng has trained a number of successful Taekwon-Do practitioners and the ITC has gained international recognition but, more importantly, he has taught us the important underlying values associated with our art and produced a safe and positive environment for us to train in. The speech delivered by Mr Jonathan Sun (4th Degree) was a wonderful tribute to the ITC and its leader, Master Daniel Sng, and the support of the ITC was evident by the numbers who were in attendance. The ITC has been going from strength to strength over the last 20 years and, under the leadership of Master Daniel Sng, it will only continue to do so.
Taekwon, and here’s to at least another 20 years of success.
