When did Tae Kwon Do come to Lesotho?
Tae Kwon Do was brought to Lesotho in the early 70s, by Mogg Yoon and Yeon Hwan Park. The pair, both highly decorated TKD competitors, were sent by the Korean government as technical assistance to the African Kingdom. Mr. Yoon went on to become the personal bodyguard to president Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya, and head the Kenyan Taekwondo Association. Mr. Park moved to the USA in 1980, and at one point was coach of the US Olympic Tae Kwon Do team.
