Dear GMasters, Masters, Instructors and Students:
Queens Taekwon-Do Center and I cordially invite you to the XVII New York Taekwon-Do Tournament to be held on September 23, 2012 in the Fitzgerald Gymnasium of Queens College, located at 65-30 Kissena Blvd. Flushing, NY 11367.
After 13 wonderful years of competition at LaGuardia Community College, the New York Taekwon-Do Tournament changed venues in 2009. This will be our fourth year at Queens College, a place that is easily accessible and provides private parking, as well as cafeteria service. Three times the size of our previous location, this site has a capacity for 1,600 people and 22,800 sq. ft. and can hold eight 9’ x 9’ rings.
This location has allowed us to better accommodate both our competitors and spectators, and has enabled our event to grow even further. The size of this facility makes it possible for us to host a one-day event instead of the usual two, allowing everyone to save not only time but also money in hotel accommodations and transportation costs.
As one of the biggest I.T.F. competitions in the United States, we are always looking for ways to improve the functional and competitive aspects of our event. We truly hope this year will be another one to remember. We also hope that with your participation our event continues to support the world-wide effort to continue to keep alive General Choi Hong-Hi’s Legacy.
Yours in Taekwon-Do,
Master Ruben Suarez
Queens Taekwon-Do Center
