The 18th USNTF International Championships & Seminar 
held July 27 – 29, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois.

The Instructor seminar on Friday 7/27/12 was a great success with approximately 150 participants, including Black Belts, Instructors and Masters. Grand Master Ahn, from Kukkiwon in Korea, was quite impressed with the turnout for the Kukkiwon Poomse session.

Our 2-day Tournament event took place on Saturday & Sunday with more than 500 competitors from martial arts schools in the local Chicagoland area, Nationwide from many other states, as well as other countries. We had many great events such as a demonstration by our Koryo Gumdo Black Belt members with Master Lee from Korea and a great Taekwondo Aerobic performance by the team from Scotland!

Thank you to all the USNTF schools and competitors!  We appreciate your support and participation.
