Summer camp Poland

Participants from Belgium:  Alice and Hana from ITF Brussels and Laura, Adam, Suzanna and Nicolas from Samjok-O. Report written by Nicolas: polen

We landed in  Warsaw on Friday 19th August early afternoon. Then transportation to  Biala Podlaska was organized and  we had the opportunity to meet 2 persons from Finland during that time, to whom we spent quite some time altogether during the camp. The camp took place at the sport facilities of the Faculty of Physical Education in Biala Podlaska. It is a huge area that offers several halls and gyms, a swimming pool, running track, etc… We were accommodated in students’ apartments on site. With walking distance, there were shops in case we needed to buy anything such as water.  On the first evening, all participants (around 160) were gathered together and Master Loboda (8th degree) explained the organization of the camp. He also introduced all the foreign countries that were participating to this camp. In addition to Belgium, there were representatives from Belarus, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Norway, Romania, Uzbekistan and Poland. You could feel welcomed.  After that, we were divided in 3 groups based on the belt and age.  Every day, the training started at 7:00 AM with optional yoga course followed by breakfast. Yoga lessons were given by Boosabum  Andrzej Kozlowski (precursor of Taekwon-Do in Poland) and proved to be a very good way to start your day.
