Age is No Barrier
Johnny Ang Yow Hua, 78, and Wong See Fook, 83, proved that taekwondo is a sport
of life. Besides honing their skills regularly by themselves, they enjoyed training with
members of TEAMgOLD every Sunday at the National Training Centre.
At their advanced age, they inspired many of the other younger participants with their
energy and enthusiasm during training. Most of all, they showed an insatiable appetite
Yow Hua and See Fook certainly deserved respect because they could not only
perform the various sparring tactics and techniques and poomsae movements almost
effortlessly but also outlast some of the ‘younger’ trainees.
Guests at the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF) Anniversary Dinner on 21 June
2014 were privileged to watch a scintillating and entertaining performance by the two
oldest taekwondo practitioners in Singapore.
In recognition of their technical ability, Yow Hua and See Fook were promoted to 6th
dan respectively on 7 October 2014. They received their promotion certificates from
Mr Milan Kwee, STF President, at the STF Secretariat.
Congratulations to Yow Hua and See Fook on the promotion. The taekwondo
community is proud of both of you.
