Japan to the beautiful town of Oakville, nearly filling the 1,000-
The tournament started with an opening ceremony that was culminated with some inspirational words from FGMR as we celebrated his 80th birthday with a cake and the singing of Happy Birthday by the entire stadium. The was also a moment of silence in honour of the Cheneral Choi Hong Hi who would have been 100 this year. The tournament was highlighted by a fiercely competitive Black Belt division consisting of over 90 participants, many of whom had international experience competing in previous World Championships. St. John’s, Newfoundland was also chosen as the host for the 2019 CanAm Championships.

On the Sunday morning after the CanAm Championships, First Grand Master Rhee Ki Ha conducted a technical seminar assisted buy GM Paul Cutler. Participants from Canada, USA, Japan, Nicaragua, Argentina and the UK participated. The seminar was very interesting not only from a technical and physical perspective but also the amount of historical facts and stories that Grand Master shared with the students. The people who unfortunately could not attend this seminar missed a great opportunity and experience that rarely comes around. First Grand Master Rhee Ki Ha was the closest person to General Choi and he is one of his original Students.
