My guest this week is someone I met very early on during my career in politics. Evangelos Ligeros is one of the most prominent personalities in Canadian Taekwondo. He is the face behind Chong Lee Taekwondo, an institution through which Taekwondo was first introduced to Canada and founded by his father-in-law, the late Grandmaster Chong Lee, nearly 60 years ago! Evangelos is a Grandmaster 7th dan, 8 time national champion, international, US Open and Panamerican medalist and among many other achievements, he is also a World Taekwondo and Korean Martial Arts Masters Hall Of Fame recipient. He has trained and coached many athletes in becoming medalists at senior, junior and military world championships. On this episode we look back at his incredible journey, his relationship with one of the greatest martial arts mentors and his passion for preserving the school’s mission and its rightful place in our society. I hope you enjoy this conversation!
