The 15th International Tang Soo Do Federation World Championships were held in Washington, D.C. from July 25, 2018 until July 29, 2018. Montgomery Karate traveled to our nation’s capital to compete in this tournament. Competitors came from all over the world, including from the United Kingdom, Mexico, Chile, Panama, Germany, and Portugal to name a few.
Twelve Montgomery Karate students entered 31 events and placed for medals in 17 events. In addition to the tournament there were two days of training seminars. The finale of the trip was Black Belt examinations held on Sunday the 29th. Two of our students tested for Cho Dan, or first degree; one tested for E Dan, or second degree; and one tested for Sam Dan, or third degree. It was a very exciting day and everyone did well!!!!
An announcement was made by Choong Jae Nim that the 16th World Championships will be held in Orlando, Florida in the summer of 2020. Montgomery Karate will be there!!!
