Bonifay taekwondo master teaches at Crestview event

The Korean Martial Art Festival is hosted at Gordon Martial Arts and was ranked by Black Belt Magazine as one of the “10 Most Do Martial Art Events” and brings people from all over the world.

Two martial arts students said recent seminars helped them improve their technique and inspired continued education in combat practices.

"The more I attend these conferences or festivals, the more I thirst for knowledge," said Crestview resident Dr. Alberto Barbon. Learning about various techniques, including forms, sparring and weapons training, reminded him “you can always improve on what you’re doing,” he said.

Crestview resident Angela Mobley agreed. She began practicing martial arts nine months ago following her children’s participation in the program.

"It's something we can do together, it’s exercise, it’s learning something new," she said.
