Chesapeake Bay Tournament


Outstanding Tang Soo Do Spirit from Everyone Involved!

I don’t know the Exact Head Count, but I am so glad that Synergy expanded their Do Jang! We were able to fully operate 4 rings all day and everything ran Smoothly! A Huge Thank You to SBN KT Pagano for being my shadow all day and attending to things that I couldn’t get to!

Honestly. I could say something about every one of our Leaders and Students, but this would then be a very long e-mail…besides, it’s Fun to hear the stories told, so this week, ASK!

As always, I emphasize that the Learning Experience is what is MOST important! Including Confidence, Self-Esteem, and Perseverance…however, it is always nice to come home with something a little extra!


Even if you don’t Win, you Learn…which is in itself Winning!
