WORKSHOPS FOR MEN TKDMeetUP - Ignite Your Strength

With great joy, I invite you to the next edition of TKDMeetUp – Ignite Your Strength, workshops for men! Just like last time, it will take place in the exceptional location of Dojo Stara Wies – European Budo Centre on 3rd - 5th of May, 2024.

The place is created for martial arts training - a place where you can delve deeper into the essence of our art, return to its roots and remind yourself why you chose the path of martial arts in the first place.

Here's the summary of the last year's edition!

TKDMeetUp 2024 - Ignite Your Strength will be a meeting of men from different countries practicing Taekwon-Do, aiming to build their physical and mental strength on solid and healthy foundations. The workshops will combine physical training, mind workshops, and mindfulness mediations, emphasizing the aspects highlighted by the founder of Taekwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi.

Under the patronage of the Polish Taekwon-Do Association, we are organizing an event where distinguished guests from the world of martial arts will share effective methods of self-improvement with us. As leaders in your communities, this type of work is always the first and best step towards positively influencing your environment and, of course, improving the quality of your own life.

The list of speakers is not yet closed, but I can already confirm the presentations of the following individuals, well-known in our community:

Master Martin Hewlett Master Martin Hewlett from the United Kingdom. With 35 years of experience in Taekwon-Do and 20 years in the healthcare profession, he also holds World Records in powerlifting. Currently, he focuses on using hypnotherapy to help people realize their full potential.
Master Hewlett runs the Calming Anxiety podcast, which is number 1 in the UK for topics related to anxiety and fears. He will share his best meditation techniques and effective tools he uses in working with clients.

Sabum Roy Rolstad (VI DAN Taekwon-Do, VI Dan Hapkido) from Norway is a Taekwon-Do instructor, active in NTN (National Team Norway), often cited as an example to follow (in Norway, Taekwon-Do ITF is the most practiced sport). He is the co-creator of the ITF Radix system, which provides a new perspective on formal patterns (using familiar movements for real combat and self-defense).

During the last meeting, he inspired us all with his workshop "Chon-Ji - a complete fighting system." Participants were impressed by the alternative applications of movements from familiar patterns. In the May TKDMeetUp, we will continue the adventure with ITF Radix to learn more and inspire our students more strongly to practice patterns.

Sławomir ListkiewiczSabum Sławomir Listkiewicz is a movement enthusiast and a Taekwon-Do coach with a VI DAN degree. During TKDMeetUp, he will conduct Movement sessions, which he has been practicing for 6 years.
"Movement is the foundation of human existence, movement is life. Movement unleashes energy for action. For the human body to function well, movement should be diverse, taking place in a variable environment, using different objects, individually and in interaction with other people. Movement is freedom in physical, emotional, and spiritual terms."
In our sessions, we will focus on key areas of our movement system: the spine, shoulder girdle, and hip girdle. The goal will be to activate, make more flexible, improve awareness, and increase control within these areas. We will perform individual, pair, and group tasks.

Sabum Łukasz Grygiel Sabum Łukasz Grygiel - the event organizer, president of the Extremis Foundation, dedicated to complementary development in the areas of the mind, body, and mindfulness. With 25 years in Taekwon-Do, he is the author of the Black Belt project. Over the years, he has acquired knowledge in transpersonal coaching, meditation, mindfulness, Wim Hof's breathing methods, and hypnotherapy. The methods he has learned aim to enable lasting positive change in significant areas of life.
He will lead a Taekwon-Do training session combined with meditation/relaxation and workshops related to effective methods of changing thinking patterns and eliminating limiting self-perceptions.

If you want to learn more about how the mind works, how to manage it better, spend time with friends and martial arts enthusiasts in discussions and training - I invite you to this unique place on a global scale.

I encourage you to watch the video with impressions from the previous edition.

LEARN MORE Organizer

We are a non-profit organization promoting development in the areas of body, mind and mindfulness, mainly through martial arts - especially Taekwon-Do. For years, we have been working with Masters (Master Jedut, Master Suska, Master Doulay, Master Solovey) and outstanding athletes (Katya Solovey, Mark Trotter, the Lind sisters and many others) from around the world to provide valuable materials in the form of books, applications, programs and coaching platform.

As the president of the foundation, I have also been developing activities related to mindfulness and ego management workshops for men for a long time. I know that many people in the Taekwon-Do world also delve into these important topics.

TKDMeetUp is a combination of experiences from the world of Taekwon-Do, the personal journey that I share with you, and experiences in working with clients from outside the world of Taekwon-Do.
