Dear Tang Soo Do Students & Parents:

I would like to invite you to our 8th Annual Region 22 Championship. I encourage all of our Tang Soo Do family members to join us for this day of friendly competition and camaraderie. Grandmaster Strong will be our guest of honor; this is an opportunity to introduce yourself and meet this prestigious member of our Association.

This championship is not a contest; rather it is a demonstration of self and an opportunity to learn with others. Therefore, the atmosphere is more like a big class than a tournament. I am sure you will enjoy this event and discover many good things about yourself. Remember that WTSDA members should always conduct themselves in a positive manner and should obey the rules of conduct supported by the WTSDA. As such, anyone who does not obey the rules of conduct will be escorted off the premises of the event.

As always, we will be providing many divisions, and all participants 9 years old and younger will receive a participation medal. Grand Champion trophies will be awarded as follows:

Youth Dan Female Youth Dan Male Youth Gup Female Youth Gup Male
Adult Dan Female Adult Dan Male Adult Gup Female Adult Gup Male
Senior Dan Female Senior Dan Male Senior Gup Female Senior Gup Male

In addition, there will be a creativity competition. Each studio is encouraged to present a team for this portion of the competition.

All applications must be postmarked and/or received by the Tournament Committee by Friday, March 3rd, 2017. Be sure you adhere to the deadlines if you wish to compete. We will not accept any applications after the deadline date.

We ask all Black Belts who will be attending to complete the volunteer portion of the application to assist with judging, scorekeeping, timekeeping or other duties. Judges and ring assignments will be determined in advance and posted at the Hospitality Suite and Tournament site. All studio owners should report their Black Belts who can be assigned to judging duties via email to the Judging Coordinator by March 18, 2017.

I hope that all area Tang Soo Do students are able to participate and support this championship event. We should complete the competition part of the program by approximately 5:00 p.m. As usual, there will be no entry fees for parents and family members.

Tang Soo!!

Master Scott E. Merrill

Regional Director


IMPORTANT Championship Reminders

  • Friday Night Hospitality Suite

    Each year, the Tournament Committee hosts a Friday evening Hospitality Suite at the Championship hotel for all guests and competitors. The Hospitality Suite is a place to relax, meet up with instructors and friends, grab a bite to eat, and perhaps meet someone new. Schedules and division assignments are available so that competitors can arrive at the tournament well prepared. Whether you’re staying at the hotel or simply in the area, stop by the Hospitality Suite; you never know who you may run into!
