GM Woojin Jung 
Explanation of special December 3rd Test .
This is from GM Jung as he explained it to me. Half of his generation has passed away and the other half is very sick. GM Jung wants to promote or double promote black belts who have over 40 years experience that have not promoted for a long time. He asked several black belts at the October test which represents 80% of the black belts there supported his decision and 20% were not in favor of his decision for this special test but that’s ok with GM Jung. GM Jung is very excited about this test because it will be for his legacy in which he is very proud and being a part of. Tae Kwon do as been his whole life and as his career begins to wind down he wants to do this special test while he is able to. Thank you for your understanding.
