Tang Soo Do - Original Meaning
To All International Tang Soo Do FederationTM members, families, and friends,
It is with a sad and heavy heart I announce the recent passing of one of our dearest family member; Master Guillermo Rodriguez of Mexico. Late Saturday night, Master Rodriguez was involved in an unfortunate accident which took away his life. Master Rodriguez was the head instructor for Collima Mexico and was the General Secretary for the International Tang Soo Do FederationTM Mexico. He was also recently nominated to the Technical Advisory Committee. I, Bu Choong Jae Nim Vice-President Joe Goss Sr., General Secretary Master Joe Bruno, and Technical Advisory Committee Chairman Master Y.D. Kim send their deepest sympathies and condolences to Master Guillermo Rodriguez's family and students. We all in the International Tang Soo Do FederationTM have truly lost a leader and inspiration throughout the federation. Tang Soo Master Guillermo Rodriguez!!
