GM Hopwood talks to the Dark & the Light Master

GM Hopwood talks to the Dark & the Light Master.

Now and again, someone enters your life and immediately impacts you. One of those people that made a direct and positive impact on me and also on Master Ogborne’s life was GM Ted Hopwood. 

When Master Ogborne and I were young lads and finding our way in TKD, GM Ted Hopwood was someone that we looked up to and admired. He was one of the people that first made us go wow! And fuelled our passion and love for TKD. GM Hopwood could do it all.

Accompanied by Master Ogborne and during a recent trip to Norway, we talked with GM Hopwood about his life in TKD and the difference he made to our TKD journey.

I hope you enjoy our chat.
