Over the weekend of July 25-27, Grandmaster Tony Morris represented Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts at the annual Grand Nationals event conducted by the United Taekwondo Alliance (UTA).
The Grand Nationals serves several purposes within the UTA. It is a venue for a weekend long convention that includes professional education for member school owners and instructors, an opportunity for high-ranking (4th Dan and above) Black Belt testing and promotions, and the Grand National Championship Tournament.
Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts is honored to be a new member of the UTA. As a function of that membership, Grandmaster Morris was invited to attend the Grand Nationals, both as a professional presenting speaker to other school owners covering best business practices and relational operations – as well as – one of several high-ranking (8th Dan and above) judges for the Black Belt rank testing.
Asheville Sun Soo is enthusiastic about adding the UTA to our network of school associations, in addition to our home association of Taekwon-do International. These partnerships are beneficial to our students, expanding the number of sister schools we connect with, and providing opportunities for expanding outreach and service. We look forward to our continued association with both TKDI and the UTA – and to seeing students and instructors from both at our Invitational Tournament, to be held on September 28!
