A Thank You Note

I want to express my sincerest gratitude to all of you who chose to participate and support the 20th Annual Yushen Lai’s Invitational Taekwondo Championship. Every single one of you has made this event possible and successful year after year for the past 20 years.  The Masters, Coaches and Instructors who passionately teach the art we love to our athletes, encouraged and chose this tournament for your students to experience, and lastly the students who have chosen this tournament to compete and test their skills among their peers.

I also want to apologize on the extended hours of the competition to those black belts who competed late into the evening due to an unforeseen computer technical problem. A few rings were shut-down for almost two hours and in turn pushed the tournament to 10 o’clock. Special THANKS to Gregory Dharman and Mr. Rolly Daling in such great effort in rushing home for the computer part which finally made the competition rings functioning.

Thank You and I look forward to experiencing another great tournament with all of you at the 21st Annual on 2/24/2018.
