World Class Photography restored

Between 2006 and 2013 our key tournament photographer was Mr Doug Hanna. His photos are what inspired many generations of athletes to one day perform on the world stage, as his work was displayed on-line and in our TKDTalk magazine.

Doug also published many many articles in a blog, which unfortunatly was discontinued by Google. He in the process of painstakingly restoring all the articles, links and photographs in the website TKDACTION.COM. We are so pleased these valuable photos will never be lost!

Below is a sample from the site - please visit to see and read some of important history.

Thanks to Mr Doug Hanna!
