Dear Masters, Instructors and students:
The 52nd IIC began on April 9, with a moment of silence in memory of Grand Master Tran. It was a pleasure to have Grand Master Tran’s daughter Joliette, her husband and his son Nicolas attending the IIC held in Denver, Colorado.
We were honored by the attendance of Grand Master Van Binh, Grand Master Trajtenberg, Grand Master Marano and Grand Master Bos. We greatly appreciate the infectious enthusiasm and wealth of knowledge the ITF Technical Committee lead by Grand Master Marano brought to the event. I believe that the ITF technical committee did a superb job of correcting and explaining the applications of all techniques.
On Saturday evening we all settled down to a relaxing banquet, filled with great food. Each and every person attending was able to make new and lasting friendships.
Thank you too all the Masters, Instructors and students for your participation and support of the ITF.
Available soon pictures of the 52nd IIC at www.thehiredcamera.com.
