When 17 of our students travel to Grandmaster Kang’s (pronounced “Kong’s) tournament, there is only one result…excellence in all areas. These areas include: martial art spirit, good sportsmanship, quality judging, many trophies and most importantly, friendship.
Master Gorino and 17 students traveled to Charleston, West Va. to compete in the 39th Annual US Open. To the competitors credit, they returned with 36 trophies, including many 1st place awards. Although SaBum-Nim stresses the sportmanship and martial art spirit aspects of the competition, he is pleased to see his students perform so well and receive trophies as a reward for their training.
Tournaments are a fun, exciting and educational experience. Travel tournaments provide additional benefits and Master Gorino hopes to see even more competitors at next year’s US Open. Until your next tournament opportunity, train to be your best. Pil-Sung!
