Honoring Edward Brightstar
In the April 2023 issue, we ran a 2-page article about this extraordinary young man.
Edward Brightstar received a plaque for doing something not seen in over sixty years of Grandmaster Jung teaching Taekwondo. He selflessly postponed testing for orange belt so that his younger brother, Jackson Brightstar, could catch up to him so that they could continue on to orange belt together. Grandmaster Jung was so impressed by Edward’s caring act that he had a special plaque made up to commemorate the event, and had an article run in the Taekwondo Times magazine.
Grandmaster Jung has repeated on many occasions how rare and special such a quality is in this generation–this desire to succeed and grow as a family, not just an individual.
