Dates have now been confirmed for the Chungdokwan training camp in Korea next year. The camp will be from Friday 20th to Monday 23rd July. There will also be an additional opportunity to train with Grandmaster Shin Byeong Hyun at his dojang in the evenings of the Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th July (i.e. after the Chungdokwan training camp).
Master Gerry Reilly of Bluewave Korean Martial Arts has offered to coordinate travel and accommodation plans for those who want to travel as a group. The plan will be to travel out on Wednesday 18th July to arrive in Seoul early on Thursday 19th July and then travel back on Friday 27th July. This will allow time for training, but also sightseeing, shopping etc.
Flight costs will be approximately £800, training camp £115 and additional training with Grandmaster Shin £50. Assuming two people sharing a room, hotel costs will be approximately £200 (a more accurate estimate will be available once the event hotel is confirmed). The total budgetary estimate for the trip is £1,500/person.
If you are interested in attending and travelling as a group, please let Master Gerry Reilly know as soon as possible (firstname.lastname@example.org). He would like expressions of interest for the group booking before Christmas. Flights will be booked at the end of January and so a deposit to cover flight costs will be required by 31st January.
If you are interested in attending but will not travel as part of the group, please send Natalie Mestry (TCGB Secretary General) an email to let us know (email@example.com). Please note if you want to make different travel and hotel plans you will need to book these independently.
