So if you have a couple of friends in your studio or in other studios or even in other regions who you would like to match up with to make a team and take on all challengers, reach out to them and make plans to register as a Goodwill 3 Person Sparring Team today. If you’d like to compete on a 3 Person Goodwill Sparring Team, but do not have team mates you can even register for the division individually and then the TAC will randomly match you up with two other members at the event to create a 3 Person Goodwill Sparring Team. 3 Person Goodwill Sparring Teams

I Missed The Opportunity To Qualify To Attend The 2014 National Festival

Question: I am a Gup student and I missed the opportunity to bid or pledge for the National Festival and I am wondering if there is any way that I can still qualify to attend?

Answer: Yes, you still have another opportunity to attend the National Festival thanks to the leadership initiative of the members and supporters who demonstrated strong personal initiative and extended exceptional support for the 2014 National Festival Destination. (Listed below)

Each of them have been given five (5) invitations that they can give to whoever they want. Contact one of them listed below and perhaps you can still get an invitation to attend the Festival and that is all that’s required for you to qualify to attend in 2014.

You are invited

(If you bid or pledged and your name is not listed, please email headquarters@soobahkdo.com )

Four Times As Many Kick-a-thon Prizes in 2014

Four Times As Many Prizes in 2014

The United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation® Board of Directors has approved four (4) prize periods during 2014 with National level prizes being awarded at the close of each prize period.

You have multiple opportunities during 2014 to host or participate in a Moo Duk Kwan® Kick-a-thon when doing so best fits into your schedule.  And even if your studio’s schedule prevents one from being hosted, you can still compete for Studio prizes, Regional prizes and National prizes by activating your personal fundraiser online at www.mykickathon.org and raising funds that will count toward your prize totals at the end of each prize period.

Each prize calculation period will close promptly on the dates indicated.

Kick-a-thon proceeds received at Headquarters by, or postmarked by, the closing date will be counted toward prizes in the period during which they are received. For example, if you host, or participate in, a Kick-a-thon in March and the proceeds from that Kick-a-thon arrive at Headquarters in April, then they will be counted toward prizes in Qtr 2, not in Qtr 1 even though the Kick-a-thon occurred in Qtr 1. This policy will assure prompt recognition of participants, prompt calculation of prize winners and prompt delivery of prizes by NOT waiting on late submissions in order to close out prize calculations and fulfillment for a published prize period.
