We are so proud of our students who compete and do demos with us! Showing our skills and styles in public is a difficult thing to do. Many of these students took the extra time to come to our competition and demo class on Saturdays to prepare.
We have performed demonstrations as the Iris Festival, the Parenting Fair, Public Servants Appreciation Day and the Greeneville Summer Music Fest.
The demo team is open to all students, so when we do demos people will see all ages, ranks and skill levels. They see how students progress through the ranks as the demo team performs different levels of forms, weapon, sparring and self-defense routines. And even with all we perform, it is only a small part of the many things that East TN Tang Soo Do has to offer.
We travel to Fayetteville to participate in Tang Soo Do tournaments and try to travel to CT once a year for a TSDMA interclub tournament and the USG National tournament.
We run a competition class every Saturday from 3-4p.m. where we teach protocol, procedure, rules and behavior at tournaments as well as sharpening form and sparring skills for competition.
Students are not expected to attend all tournaments but it is a good idea to try to make at least 1 - 2 per year to see what the martial arts community is doing.
All tournaments on this list are possible tournaments we may attend, giving time and interest.
Tournaments we have attended are highlighted in green. The links will take you to pictures from the tournament.
