A History of Tae Park Seminars

The Tae Park National Seminar on behalf of Grandmaster Tae Zee Park is directed and hosted every year in The Southern Part Of The United States by Junior Grand Master Dennis Lewis. The first official seminar that Sa Bum Nim taught was in 1992 in Hickman, Kentucky. Grandmaster Tae Zee Park, Senior Master Ed Rugh, Senior Master Brian Anderson, and Senior Master James Rodgers were present. Grandmaster Park taught with complete precision, accuracy, and expertise and covered a variety of topics. From there the seminar and testing has grown to several hundred participants with many Color-belts, Black-belts, Masters, Senior Masters, Junior Grandmasters, and Grandmasters from around the country and the world. Several Dignitaries over the years have visited the activities of the seminar. These include Mayors of several cities, City Councilmen, state representatives, State Congressmen, United States Congressmen, and many other V.I.P.’S. The seminar is a mecca for all institutes to practice, teach, and learn from one of the leaders in the world, and one of the best, Tae Zee Park.
