Hurricane Sally:  Thank You Letter from Sa Bom Nim Chris DuFour

Posted October 22, 2020

As many of you know, the Gulf Coast was recently devastated by Hurricane Sally. Our community experienced a great deal of damage from the high winds, flooding and trees falling on houses and power lines.

Unfortunately, our dojang did not go unscathed from this massive storm. We experienced water damage and a variety of other challenges. In the midst of all this struggle, we have been deeply encouraged by the outpouring of love and support from our local family and friends as well as our International Tang Soo Do Federation Family.

Choong Jae Nim C. S. Kim and Master Y. D. Kim have been amazing through this whole ordeal. They have been there for us every step of the way. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to them as well as all that have called, texted, emailed and donated time and funds to help us.

We feel deeply blessed to have all of you in our life. As a result of this amazing support, we are back and the dojang is looking better than ever. A deep bow to all of you for your compassion.  We are forever grateful.

Ko Map Sum Ni Da (Thank You) & Tang Soo!!!
