Tomorrow marks the 272nd Promotion Test at Jungs Taekwondo since 1973. 190 Thousand students have walked in and out of the dojang throughout the last 46 years, many of which whose lives were forever changed by their time at Jungs Taekwondo. Grandmaster Jung has raised over 5000 Black Belts throughout the years and has had the prestigious honor of raising nine 9th Degree and 13- 8th Degree Blackbelt Grandmasters all the way through from white belt to today, with nearly 40 years spent training together as members of the Jung’s Taekwondo family. Out of 272 Promotion tests, diligently held every two months since 1974, Grandmaster Woojin Jung has only missed two tests and has never failed to attend class whenever he has been in town. Not many Master’s in the world have shown such unyielding devotion to their students, without fail for over 45 years. Even today at 77 years old, Grandmaster Jung can always be seen wearing his dobo and guiding new students to begin their martial arts journey.

In 1981 Dr. Yang Ahn Kim, Chung E Kim, Sang Kyu Shim, Jung Nam Lee and Grandmaster Woojin Jung started TaeKwonDo Times. They wanted to build a relationship between people all over the world. Three of the founders have passed away, and one has retired. Grandmaster Jung is the only one still involved in the magazine, which has been published continuously since then. For many years the magazine was only available in print copies, which made it difficult for people around the world to access. But now for several years Taekwondo Times has also been available in digital form, which gives martial artists the world over quick and easy access to the publication. We also recently designed a new website, which has been a very popular avenue for expanding our martial arts community. Please visit www. and give us your feedback. We are proud that TKDT represents a worldwide community of martial artists, not only taekwondo practitioners, but martial artists of every style can be found throughout the pages of every issue, sharing their experiences and expertise with our readers. We thank everyone for contributing and continuing to support the magazine, we look forward to sharing at the very least another 38 years with all of you in our martial arts family.
