20 February 2002 | A Taekwondo black belt clears a row of Berkeley martial arts students and a brave audience volunteer (in black), and breaks a board held aloft by assistants. This breathtaking campus demonstration of the Korean martial art known as “the way of fist and foot” was a lead-up to the World University Taekwondo Championship, which Berkeley will host in June. Taekwondo master Ken Min started the martial arts program on campus 30 years ago.
