North Korean Martial Artists Set For U.S. Tour

A group of taekwondo athletes from North Korea will tour select cities on the East Coast later this month.

The 17-member team will provide demonstrations in New York City, Boston and New Jersey from June 11 to June 14.

The tour comes on the heels of a similar tour in 2007 and is being spearheaded by Grandmaster Woo-Jin Jung, a Korean American from Iowa.

Check out a video of their high-flying board-breaking demo after the jump.
