Today Wim van der Linden passed his 4th dan test. Wim tested for this instructor grade in front of masters Ko Baek-yong (9th dan), Leon de Heus (7th dan) and Ko Se-hwan (5th dan).
The fourth dan is the official instructor grade in hankido. During the test Wim was not only required to show the 4th dan techniques, but was asked questions about the principles of hankido and teaching methods as well.
Wim is now not only 4th dan but one of our federation’s certified national instructors as well. We would like to congratulate Wim on a job well-done.
