BIBA Summer Camp


Blackie’s International Baduk Academy was opened on the 31st of January, 2011 by Kim Seung-jun (Blackie) 9p and Diana Koszegi 1p. In less than two years, we had 67 students from 21 countries. The academy is open to anyone all year round; but we decided to make one camp during the summer and another camp during the winter vacation.

We have also learned that a lot of people are very active in teaching children for example in Turkey, Hungary and France. It is probably the same in other countries as well. So we would also like to help and motivate these teachers who are spreading Baduk. Moreover it would be nice to create a good relationship between children from all over the world. So we hope, kids will also join two our BIBA camps.
