45th University of California Open Taekwondo Championship on April 26, 2014 at Haas Pavilion
Posted in Uncategorized | October 25th, 2013
Greetings from the University of California Martial Arts Program!
Berkeley, California - UC Berkeley’s Martial Arts Program (UCMAP) will proudly host the University of California’s 45th Annual Open Taekwondo Championship on April 26, 2014, at the Haas Pavilion at UC Berkeley. UCMAP hopes to share a unique facet of UC Berkeley’s culture with Taekwondo players and the Berkeley community on this special day.
UCMAP will be profoundly honored to have the World Taekwondo Federation President Dr. Chungwon Choue’s presence at the oldest taekwondo championship in the United States which has implemented Korea Taekwondo Association (KTA) and World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) competition rules and regulations ever since the championship started in 1969.
Dr. Choue’s persistent, reformed-minded contribution has prevailed in the Olympic movement to stabilize taekwondo as a successful Olympic sport and we in the taekwondo community deeply appreciate his dynamic leadership. We hope you join with us for our 45th UC Open Championship and opening ceremony officiated by our special guest, WTF President Choue.
UCMAP has been an integral part of the UC Berkeley community since its official establishment in 1969 by Dr. Kyung Ho (Ken) Min. Since 2006, Dr. Russell Ahn has served as the director. He is also recognized as “Endowed Director of Martial Arts in honor of Dr. Ken Min’s Lifetime Achievement” at UC Berkeley and serves as the president of the U.S. National Collegiate Taekwondo Association (NCTA). Cal’s Taekwondo team has been national champions 33 out of 38 National Collegiate Taekwondo Championships! Come see them in action.
We encourage taekwondo practitioners of all ranks, officials and referees to participate in our 45 year old taekwondo championship. The opening ceremony of this championship will begin with a special function with WTF President Choue on Friday, April 25. Please check our website and registration information for further information as well as updates.
We hope to see you on Saturday, April 26, 2014 for our 45th Anniversary UC Open at Haas Pavilion! For more information and to register, please visit http://ucmap.org/uc-open.php.
