The Taekwondo Community's Response to Covid-19
Show Notes

At the airdate of this episode the United States and the entire world are under quarantine as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.   Traditional "face-to-face" Taekwondo practice came to a screeching halt by the middle of March in most of the world.  Dojangs and Gyms throughout the United States, and much of the world, were forced to close, temporarily, as part and parcel of the quarantine rules, and social distancing mandates implemented by Governments and medical protocol.   So what did this mean for Taekwondo practice and the Taekwondo community?  Does this mark the end of Taekwondo and martial arts practice?  The inspiring answer is No.  Creative Taekwondo Masters throughout the country have responded with the tenacity that you would expect from these practitioners with an Indomitable Spirit.  Marc Zirogiannis explores how these innovators have marshaled modern technology to provide engagement and classes online using Facebook Live, YouTube, Zoom Video Conferencing and more.
