Pavel Loupal, 1977-2013
"Here lie 300, who did their duty." - that´s classical quotation from Taekwon-do Encyclopedia as example of indomitable spirit. For me personally, Pavel Loupal is even better example for his long fight with serious illness.

International umpire course
What? Refferees on toboggan? In suits? Of course not, but it is partly true as you will see later.There were International referee course and seminar hosted by Czech Taekwon-do Federation. It took place in Aqua palace in Prague so now you probably undestand why I mention toboggan all the time.

Autumn Sonkal's camp
Wednesday was begun by breakfast after which most of us rested to get ready for first training. Training was focused on technical aspects - patterns for lower grades and team patterns, sport self-defence and special techniques for more advanced students. Technical training, but hard enough to make us hungry for schnitzel we got for lunch. Lunch break was shorter and we started sparring training at 2 PM.

Autumn Sonkal's camp
Festive day of Monday was cloudy. Few brave individuals went for morning run, rest stayed in bed dreaming of breakfast. After breakfast dreamers went to bed again, hyperactives played some games. Morning training was focused on hand striking and foot techniques with some time for team patterns. Hard cardio followed so lunch was sincerely appreciated.

Interview with Milan Prokeš
When I first met Milan (Milan Prokeš, V. Dan, head instructor of Velešín Taekwon-do school, national team member, head of czech Taekwon-do federation technical comittee), I though he is just old guy from south bohemia, who is respected because he is head instructor of his own school and practices for long. What a mistake.
