Due to the impact of the pandemic, a large majority of businesses, both big and small, are facing difficult times and are struggling to sustain themselves. But imagine starting or taking over a business during these unprecedented times!

On 29 January, a Taekwondo coach,  Mr Kum Yew Wong, shared his story on Facebook as to why he took over a dessert shop, called Black Ice, in the midst of the MCO 2.0.

Mr Kum (also known as Coach Kum) is a Taekwondo instructor from Tsun Jin High School who took over Black Ice at Leisure mall, Cheras when it was sold off during the pandemic.

“I am 43 years old this year, I have been a Taekwondo coach in Tsun Jin High School for 18 years,” he wrote.

He also wrote about how he started his journey as a Taekwondo coach, and how some of the students even came back to join as coaches in his coaching team so that they could teach others and cultivate more rising Taekwondo stars in the future.

However, due to the implementation of MCO, they could not proceed to hold classes as per usual. His students, that are now coaching assistants, said they felt lost as they could not make a living from coaching classes now.

“When I coincidentally found out that Black Ice at Leisure mall has been selling homemade taro balls & special dessert for three years now and all of their ingredients are handmade, I decided to take over the dessert shop when the shop’s owner expressed interest in selling it,” he wrote.

Many have asked Mr Kum why he would take over the shop when the Covid-19 crisis is getting worse and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to operate in the food & beverage industry. It is also safer to keep some cash for himself.

Mr Kum then answered his friends,

“I have taken it over so that my students will still be able to earn a living. At least here I can still monitor them and provide guidance to them, in a way that will help lessen their burden.”


While it can’t be denied that this pandemic has been tough on everyone, Mr Kum said,

“The road ahead is indeed difficult, but just like learning Taekwondo, regardless of how tiring it might be, we must hold on and stay strong, this is the unyielding spirit that every Taekwondo student should have!”
