International Taekwondo Festival 2017
Compete, Appreciate, and Celebrate Taekwondo at its Finest!

It is my pleasure to invite you to 2017 The International Taekwondo Festival I extend a warm greeting to returning participants and a special welcome to those attending for the first time. I would also like to give my great appreciation to the Masters and Instructors who are devoting their time and energy to support and increase the popularity of Taekwondo in the USA.
Each year the tournament has become more successful than previous years past, and now we are an International tournament with over 5,000 attendees. The purpose of the Festival is to give our youth the opportunity to achieve their goals and develop a winning attitude in life. We provide a beautiful outdoor venue, safe and fair matches, and a festive atmosphere.  I promise to continue to bring high quality Taekwondo events that inspire the growth of Taekwondo.
Good luck and have a wonderful tournament experience at the 2017 International Taekwondo Festival!
