2017 National Capitol Open TKD Championship Invitation Letter
H.K. Lee Academy of Tae Kwon Do
Dear Grandmasters, Masters and Instructors,
465 Herndon Parkway, Herndon, Virginia 20170
(703) 437-5111, Fax: (703) 437-6143
I am pleased to invite you to the 2017 National Capitol Open TaeKwonDo Championship on Saturday, March 25th, 2016 from 10am to 6pm at South Lakes HS, 11400 South Lakes Drive, Reston, VA 20191.
We are all looking forward to this event, to seeing all of you there and once again working closely together to bring greater honor to the art of TaeKwonDo. I am confident we will once again enjoy the special unity of a true TaeKwonDo family that this championship is known for. I thank you for your past support and ask for your help and participation to ensure another successful championship.
I hope you and your students are as excited about this year's championship as I am. I earnestly request that you will continue to educate your students so that they will not be concerned just with winning a trophy or medal. Please continue to guide them to discover that they are, first of all, competing within themselves to further improve their knowledge.
Attending the right kinds of championships, such as the one we are hosting, is important for the growth of TaeKwonDo students. The presence of the students from other schools helps everyone to improve beyond everyday class situations and gives everyone a unique opportunity to express themselves to others.
So, although we compete together, more importantly we also come together in a spirit of helping each other to grow physically, mentally and morally through participation in this kind of championship. Therefore, in addition to the regular awards, as I have done in previous years, I will also give out many special awards to the competitors from each rank who demonstrate this spirit If you feel any of your competitors deserve special recognition, please let me know at least two weeks prior to the championship so I can prepare a special award for him or her.
In the same spirit, all decisions will be final and no arguing with officials will be tolerated at this championship. Let's all work together to encourage our students' improvement, and share our discipline and TaeKwonDo spirit with each other as well as with the public.
If you have any questions or need special assistance, please do not hesitate to call us at (703) 437-5111.
Grandmaster Hyeon Kon Lee
