Q: When did you start practicing taekwondo and why?
A: I started practicing taekwondo in 1978 when I was 10 years old. I am now a 2nd Dan Kukkiwon black belt. I was very influenced by the teachings of the late Grandmaster Song Bong-kyung of Korea, the founder of taekwondo in Honduras. Grandmaster Song, my father-in-law, arrived in Honduras in 1975 and started disseminating taekwondo by teaching the military and police. He was a 9th Dan Kukkiwon black belt holder and loved by the Honduran people. I married his daughter, Evette Song Kang, a 4th Dan Kukkiwon black belt holder, in 2002. My two boys, one five and the other 8 months, know how to kick.
