Kang’s Academy won five gold medals, as well as a “black belt” in full contact, at the ISKA Pan American Open Martial Arts Championships held in Brazil.
Sensei Jin Joo Kang Lee and her student Jhoanna Chiang won two gold medals in traditional taekwondo forms and two in musical forms, where they presented a form choreographed with the music of “Viva Mi Patria Bolivia.” Pablo Sangüeza won the black belt (top prize) in full contact point sparring.
Their success did not go unnoticed in the Bolivian press. They had interviews with all the major media outlets and were featured in local newspapers. The ISKA Pan American Championships is among the most prestigious events in South America, despite being a newcomer on the scene. Expect great things at the 2020 ISKA Pan American Championships.
