Coaches Huy Nguyen, David Turgeon, Barbara Brand, Jung Hwan Jin and Long Nguyen led a National Poomsae Team Fundraising Seminar this past weekend Sept. 10-11, 2016 in Mountain View, CA. The seminar was a success with over 75 in attendance. Over $9000 was raised for the US National Poomsae Team. Thank you to Master Chin Sonu of TaeKwon Kids for hosting!

The seminar covered both freestyle and recognized poomsae elements, and these elements were demonstrated by 27 national team members who were in attendance. The camp was also a chance for these national team members to come together and train as a national team for the first time.
