Taekwondo Hall of Famer Monsour del Rosario slams Bullying incident in Ateneo




Bullying in any form has no place in a civilized society.

So when the different videos of an Ateneo student bullying his peers hit the internet there were no love lost in condemning the act.

And since this issue involves an Ateneo student much is to be expected since the society has put that school in such a high pedestal.

But further investigation of the bullying incident revealed that bully is actually a taekwondo practitioner makes it much worse.

A poor representation of the ideals of this martial art.

Monsour del Rosario the only non-Korean inductee in the Taekwondo Hall of Fame has made his thoughts known regarding this matter.

And he is open in suggesting and recommending that the kid be stripped of his belt and banned from the Taekwondo organization.


Below is his full FaceBook post:



I've received literally hundreds of texts and calls in the last 24 hours from our colleagues in the press and personal friends asking for a statement on the bullying incident that took place in Ateneo recently.

The amount of messages increased exponentially after it was revelaed that the young bully is an alleged taekwondo black belt and gold medalist.

My official statement:

Yes, none of us are perfect -- we've all made our mistakes and should not judge people loosely. But to the parents of the bully, let's be very clear here, this is as firm a judgement as you will ever get from me: Your son is a FAILED representation of our beautiful sport.

Every aspect of the viral video was hideous, weak and unacceptable.

RAISE YOUR CHILDREN BETTER. LET'S ALL RAISE OUR CHILDREN TO BE BETTER. LET'S RAISE OUR SONS -- PARTICULARLY THOSE IN THE MARTIAL ARTS -- TO BE GOOD MEN.

~ Monsour Del Rosario

  2. Yep, he needs to be stripped off his title as a Taekwondo black belter. He needs to learn a lesson.
