2019 Chungju World Martial Arts Masterships

“Beyond the Times, Bridge the World” is the slogan for the 2019 Chungju World Martial Arts Masterships, which aptly captured the essence of Martial Arts. In the spirit of peace and harmony, like-minded Martial Arts enthusiasts gathered to participate in 20 Martial Arts events held in Chungju, South Korea, from 30 August to 6 September.
