Dear Kwan Jang, Sa Bom, Kyo Sa & Tang Soo Do Practitioners and Friends,
We hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits!
It is our honor and privilege to invite you, your students and their families to the 19th World Dang Soo Do Union & 12th United States Goodwill Tang Soo Do Association Championships. This event is a Tang Soo Do Open Invitational Tournament. We are honored to host Grandmaster Song Ki Kim, President of the World Dang Soo Do Union who will preside over the event.
Get ready for a day of competition that is full of goodwill, camaraderie, and fun. The Championships will be held at Norwich Free Academy, Norwich, CT conveniently located a few miles from historic Mystic CT and close to the Mohegan Sun Casino.
Historic Mystic is a short drive from the tournament location, and we hope families will take advantage of this event to plan a family vacation with fun-filled activities like kayaking, trail hiking, fishing, golf, biking, and let’s not forget the lobsta! We’ll also be close to historical landmarks like Gillette Castle, Mystic Seaport, Nautilus & Submarine Force Museum to name a few.
Online you will find your registration packet with tournament information, schedule of events, rules, and hotel information. Downloadable registration forms are posted on our website, www.usgtsda.com. And this year we have online registration for your convenience.
We will strive to maintain the high standard of performance established in the previous events, ensuring a positive once-in-a-lifetime experience! We look forward to serving you in October.
Yours in Tang Soo Do,
