Over the past three months many pioneers, instructors and Tae Kwon Do people have contributed their time and skills to create this informal history room. It represents their bodies, minds and hearts.
The room will house artifacts from the history of Jung’s Tae Kwon Do for present and future generations to learn from. 
If you have photographs, videos or other artifacts from this history, please bring them to the opening. We also need ideas. This is your room, not a fancy museum. It will continue to educate future generations.
