Czech national championship
After a few years, this time the Championship of the Czech Republic was held in sport hall Vodova in Brno during days 11th to 13th of November.

Some find themselves in teaching and influencing others. And as time goes these meanings are changing and intertwining. And beside these there are social aspects of Taekwon-do. Meeting with my old Taekwon-do friends from time we were in talented youth organization together (15+ years ago) brought me to writing this essay. It was great evening, we met after years, but there were still what to talk about. Of course old Taekwon-do stories took its place, but we also spoke about what are we living now
