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.
Team Tryouts will be held twice a year, once during the Fall season and once during the Summer season. Any member of Tae Park Institute with the rank of Red or Black Belt 14 years and older are welcome to tryout.
Check with your instructor if you are interested in trying out for the team.
