- The thing "most"
people voted for as the thing they enjoy
most in Taekwon-Do was...FREE SPARRING
(closely followed by Patterns & Tournaments)
- And the worst...58%
percent of the votes were for THEORY.
Success at the Under 18

Master Willie Lim conducted
a New Zealand Seminar on Sunday 22nd January 2006,
1.00pm - 4.00pm at the Papakura Branch, Papakura
Normal School, Walters Road, Papakura.
Master Lim was a pioneer
of Taekwon-Do in New Zealand. He appeared in
the Auckland Star on the 16th of May 1970 doing
a flying high kick and then after had a new influx
of people joining his club at the Auckland Judo
Academy. He later settled in Hamilton and was
the head of United Martial Arts. Master Lim currently
lives in the United States and conducts seminars
throughout America and the UK.
Master Lim resurrects
interest in the traditional patterns by sharing
with you the classical techniques as intended
by the original masters. Although blocks, kicks,
and punches are an important aspect of the art,
Master Lim interprets forms as a collection of
nerve strikes, locks, releases, and counters.
