All participants learnt a great deal from FGMR & received hands-on corrections or confirmation on techniques during the seminar, especially all the releasing techniques.

Participants were in awe to the vast knowledge of FGMR.

Prior to the certificate presentations two of the participants that had shown best efforts during the seminar, received a gift from FGMR of his famous Flying Two Direction Kick (Split Kick) Poster, the award for Dan grade was given to Orjan Ring from ’Oppdal Taekwon-Do School’ and for Kup grade Sarah Minervini from ’Trondheim NTN TaeKwon-Do School’.
