I come home from a trip to find this out. For all of you that study the forms of ITF TKD, you know of this man. He lived his life through the tenets of TKD and will be missed.

As a follow up to this post.
Anyone who can get their hands on it should pick up the Sept issue of Tae Kwon Do Times. It has a really nice writeup on Gen Choi and his funeral, along with a biography of his life listed. Grandmaster Chung Kim and his staff did a really nice job putting it in the publication.

The article isn't posted online. You can visit the website and maybe find out about getting a copy at http://www.taekwondotimes.com/ I think they can export the magazine or subscriptions, or I can find out in Oct and maybe obtain extra copies while I am up there for a week. I'll be visiting Grandmaster Kim's school if I can work it into my schedule seeing family there.

Thanks for that info. And I've just found quite a bit of info at a website called Rayners Land Taekwon-do academy.

hi all, I'm new to this forum.

Does anyone know who is taking over from the General as head man?

I've heard different stories and rumours over problems in the higher ranks over the future organization of ITF as a whole.

AD is just about right. The Generals son has now started his own ITF org called ITF America. They and their ranks are not seen in the eyes of the ITF (the original) The General was said to have told his son that the Org would be turned over to him but there was a meeting in Vienna where certain ITF members were not allowed to be there or invited. There and then a vote was cast to let the general keep his place as the President and not let his son take over. Jung Hwa (the son) was made and a lot was said and done. The General kick him out of the ITF for what he had done.
Take from The Generals last words....
"Choi Jung Hwa lied me at the airport. I was again deceived. You ought to tell the public throughout the internet that I did not forgive Jung Hwa. I forgave him as a father but the Taekwondoists would never forgive him.

Before Jung Hwa apologizes Taekwondoists the world over, he will never be forgiven. While I am still alive you should send the message to the internet the soonest as possible.
The Taekwon-Do will exist forever."

Right now the battle for the Top spot in the ITF in still going crazy. You have Jung Hwa but said that he should be the one because thats the way it was set up, you have Mr. Chang Ung who general Choi said that he wanted to place as the top guy, and then you have Russell MacLellan who is the President as the moment and says that Chang Ung should not be the president right but because even though the general wanted Chang Ung to take over it was not voted in the the ITF congress so she should not get the job YET. He said that he had to problem with him taking over the spot but it should be done right and have him voted in.

Labatt from wat i heard from WTF guys(here in india) they don't like to associate themselves with Gen.(politics??) anyways... he was a great man(i heard)

<How good was he? As a TKD Martial Artist.>

my teacher is one of the fastest and powerful guy in india...n best of them too..
he said that Gen was almost manyyy times faster n powerfull than him when he met Gen, Gen was around 78-79 yr old.
