The two-year-anniversary of German Sunmudo school.

Dear martial arts friends – anjonghasejo!

With great joy and filled with thankfulness I send you today some pictures from the two-year-anniversary of our German Sunmudo school.
The school mandala was shown for the first time to the public, and our first student, Oliver, finished his last Kup-test and is now in the one-year-lasting process of preparing himself for the first Dan.
He will be the first German, who learned and trained Sunmudo in Germany and will – hopefully – pass the Dan-test next spring.
There have been also regulary Kup-tests. 12 students managed to pass these tests.
Shifu Serge Seguin from the Shaolin-Kungfu School “Blue dragon”, came to support us with his traditional “Lion-dance”-group from Munich. For the first time the “Shaolin-Lion-dance” was shown in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
We have had many guests and good food, tea, cake and coffee had been served to our guests – among them leaders of other martial-arts-schools.

So, please join our happiness and thankfulness! J

Best wishes from your student and friend Axel / Hae Woal from Germany
