Tea Ceremony and Sword Presentation
December 14, 2013
GM Jung held a Master Tea Ceremony and a Master Sword Presentation on December 14, 2013, honoring 56 new 6th and 7th Dan black belts. This was a very special event, only the 4th ceremony GM Jung has ever held in the 40 years of teaching Tae Kwon Do.

GM Jung made a special tea out of plants from Korea, the Rocky Mountains and Iowa, and he served the tea individually to the 56 master black belts and presented each with a master sword. Children and young people delivered the cups of tea and escorted the master black belts. The sword symbolizes GM Jung's martial artist heart and spirit, which each master can pass on to future generations. This was an exciting ceremony and one of the best experiences of their lives.

After the ceremony groups of master black belts broke ten-foot boards.
