International Tournament & Demo Team

The Tae Park Tae Kwon Do international tournament and demonstration team was originally formed by Grand Master Tae Zee Park in 1996.
The team competes against the best in the world. Later, GM Park created the demonstration team in order to showcase Tae Kwon Do
basics, forms, one-step, as well as free sparring. Skits were added to make the demonstrations even more entertaining for the crowds.
If you haven’t seen a demonstration, look for their next appearance and come seem them in action. It is very entertaining.
