Dear Grandmasters,

Thank you very much to those that were able to attend this year’s Annual Meeting, Banquet and Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony.  All went well and we had a good turnout considering the change in schedules.  Pictures that were taken at this year’s event will be put on a DVD and a copy will be sent to you.

Our new website will be opening soon.  Once it opens, please browse through and forward your comments to me.

Taekwondowon will officially open on September 4, 2014 in Muju, South Korea.  The grand opening ceremony will welcome the world Taekwondo community to a spectacular facility.

The April 17-19, 2015 USTGS Annual Meeting will be held in Renaissance Los Angeles Hotal,(9620 Airport Boulevard Los Angeles  CA 90045.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

History of USTGS

The United States Taekwondo Grandmasters Society was founded in 2003 by Grandmaster Won Chik Park and a prestigious group of Grandmasters across the United States. Their idea was to bring together the US Taekwondo Grandmasters nationwide to create an organization that would provide a forum for education and development of Taekwondo in the United States as well as cooperation and unity among Grandmasters.
