Uxbridge - Master Keyver successfully received his 7th Dan Taekwondo black belt at a recently held promotion test. Grand Master Sam Park, co-founder and past President of the Ontario Taekwondo Association and past Chairman of the Board of the World Taekwondo Federation Taekwondo Association of Canada, presided over the testing.
Master Keyver opened the first ever Taekwondo school in Uxbridge in 1996 with classes held at the Uxpool. In the following years more than 40 students received their back belts under his guidance. In 2011 he retired from teaching Taekwondo and in his honour a Canadian maple tree was planted at the Uxpool, to commemorate 15 years at the heart of the Uxbridge community.
During the proceeding years Master Keyver's primary focus has been on the promotion of Taekwondo as an activity open to everyone within the community, irrespective of age, gender or ability. He has continued working to improve his own abilities and through committed training, strives for a greater knowledge and understanding of the uniquely Korean martial art. Today with over 35 years devotion to Taekwondo, Master Keyver reflects; "Passing the knowledge on to the community has been the most exceptionally rewarding aspect for me. This would not have been possible without the unparalleled support I received from the Uxbridge community over all those years". April 10th 2014
