We had a GREAT time and everyone did really well. All of you upperbelts should start thinking about JOINING US NEXT YEAR. The leadership of the U.S. Open International Taekwondo Hanmadang have announced that 44 divisions from this year’s tournament will be receiving SCHOLARSHIP $$$ for winning their division. Next year, they plan on having access to upwards of $300,000 to award for Gold Medal Winners to apply towards scholarships.

This National Hanmadang has transformed into an INTERNATIONAL Hanmadang! Team China, Indonesia, S. Korea, Canada, Hawaii (not International but still far away! :)), and 4 or 5 other countries were present and competing this year.

Also, our Oregon State Hanmadang has been given the go ahead to develop into a Northwest Regional Taekwondo Hanmadang. That is a huge amount of support from National for our event and it reflects the energy and effort we all put in to making our first tournament the best it could be.


The Oregon State Taekwondo Hanmadang was incredible!
Thanks everyone for coming out and supporting the event.
Save the date for next year: May 3 & 4.

Remember, there are some awesome photos from the Hanmadang available for download!
