Master Anthony "Tony" Barnes Returns to Southern California
Visits Grandmaster Jon Wiedenman
Training, Organizing Chang Moo Kwan, Catching Up
San Pedro, California
Master Anthony Barnes and his wife Rob stayed with Grandmaster Jon Wiedenman at his home in San Pedro nearby where they both trained with Supreme Grandmaster Nam Suk Lee at the San Pedro YMCA.  Master Barnes retired from the LAPD and moved back East to Tennessee several years back.
 
Master Barnes and Grandmaster Wiedenman have been best friends for several decades and both trained extensively under Grandmaster Dae Woong Chung of Pomona for several decades.  Grandmaster Chung was a student of Sun Koo Kim, one of Supreme Grandmaster Nam Suk Lee's closest friends.
 
Master Barnes and his wife Ro started out their California adventure with a tour of San Pedro, the first stop is the Korean Friendship Bell.  Newly refurbished, is shone like a jewel on its seaside bluff.  From there, Point Fermin Lighthouse and Cabrillo Beach were definite stops.  (See Section on San Pedro for more information on these lalandmarks).
In honor of Master Barnes Visit we had an advanced Black Belt meeting and photo op, Here Grandmaster Jon Wiedenman, Master Tony Barnes, Master George Fullerton, and Master David Johns gather for a photo in Grandmaster Wiedenman's home dojo in his San Pedro residence.  This was the first time in several years all four of Supreme Grandmaster Nam Suk Lee's highest students we in the same place at the same time. 
Grandmaster Jon Wiedenman, Master Tony Barnes, Master George Fullerton, and Master David Johns in Grandmaster Wiedenman's home in the great room upstairs.  This is a large area overlooking the Los Angeles Harbor and Pacific Ocean where students and instructors often train with Grandmaster Wiedenman.
Grandmaster Jon Wiedenman, Master Tony Barnes, Master George Fullerton, and Master David Johns gather for a photo in Grandmaster Wiedenman's entry where a exotic art piece of the "White Tiger" is found.  The logo is the one approved by Supreme Grandmaster Nam Suk Lee by appointment to the Chang Moo Kwan Seminary.  Joe Hernandez, a senior instructor for some 30 years joins in the group. 
Grandmaster Jon Wiedenman, Master Tony Barnes, Master George Fullerton, and Master David Johns gather for a photo in Grandmaster Wiedenman's entry way.  The group, is joined by Dr. David Hsieh, a long time Chang Moo Kwan friend and instructor.  Dr. Hsieh is in all black.
Let the party begin! The extended Chang Moo Kwan family got together to spend some quality time with each other.  Grandmaster Jon Wiedenman hosted the gathering and a local Mexican Restaurant catered.  Special guests were of course Master Tony Barnes and his wife Ro, Master Fullerton and fiancée Barbara, Dr. David Hsieh and his wife Linda, Joe Hernandez, and Jamie Smith.  The view was incredible and the cruise ships leaving and wonderful sunset complimented the 80 degree warm January "winter" in Southern California.
