The Fourth National USTW Instructor Certification Seminar was conducted on August 12, 2006, and was met with a gathering of Black Belts, Instructors and Masters of the United States Taekwondo Won in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

At this fourth annual such offering, the participants were treated to a wide variety of topics including: 

  • Taekwondo Teaching Methodology by Master Kim Limes of Ohio
  • Enhanced Business Marketing For Taekwondo Schools by Kathy Marlow, Director of Client Relations, Member Solutions
  • Legal Implications of Taekwondo by Roger Healey, Esq. of Ohio
  • Risk Management and Insurance for Taekwondo by Master Robert K. Fujimura of New York
  • First Care Response by Master Robert Beauchamp of Tennessee
  • Governance by Master George Wukovich, Esq. of Ohio 

The Opening Session included special presentations by United States Taekwondo Won (USTW) President Sok Ho Kang, along with opening remarks by USTW Supreme Promotion Board Chair, Grand Master Kyongwon Ahn, both original founding members of the United States Taekwondo Won organization.

This USTW  Instructor Certification Seminar program is a concentrated, practical opportunity for Taekwondo Black Belts, Instructors, Masters and Grand Masters to enhance and develop their teaching, management and business skills.  Participants received information and training about the current industry trends from experts in the martial arts community.  Presented as a service to any USTW Individual Member who holds a USTW Dan Certificate, all non-member Dan holders are invited to join the USTW, and to convert their current Dan Certificates, during the USTW  Instructor Certification Seminar registration process.

Over 50 individuals who successfully participated in this event received USTW Instructor Certification for levels from "Assistant Instructor" to "Instructor" and "Master Instructor".  In addition, 20 individuals converted their current Dan Certificates and received their official USTW  Dan Certificates. This fourth USTW Instructor Certification Seminar hosted participants from the East Coast and Midwest representing an eight state area.


The USTW Instructor Certification program “ a remarkable chance to challenge and upgrade the skills of our Taekwondo Community nationwide…" said Grand Master Kyongwon Ahn.  "As a first generation Taekwondo Master it allows me to pass the rich legacy of Taekwondo to the next generation of Taekwondo Masters and leaders".


President Sok Ho Kang was pleased with the seminar program, remarking that the event “…has continued to improve…” over the past four years. Indeed, the USTW has continued to make improvements to the Instructor Certification Seminar program. This seminar saw some individuals that had taken the first seminar, four years ago, either re-certify or upgrade their current USTW Instructor Certification.


The day concluded with USTW President Kang and Master George N. Wukovich, (who served as USTW National Events Coordinator and Chair of the Instructor Certification Committee)  personally presenting all the new USTW Instructor Certificates to the successful individual attendees, beginning with Master Instructor grades. USTW Dan Certificates and Membership packages were also distributed to new USTW members.
