Dear GMs, Masters, Instructors & Black Belts,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the 102nd ITF IIC, I would like to thank all the participants who traveled to the beautiful JW Marriot Resort & Spa in Las Vegas, USA from June 26-28, 2015.
The 180 participants in attendance from the USA, Canada, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Anguilla, St. Martin, Netherlands & Great Britain all showed great enthusiasm and spirit making the IIC a huge success.
Thank you to the ITF Technical Committee: GM Hector Marano, GM Ung Kim Lan and Master Clint Norman for sharing their knowledge and improving the technical standard for all in attendance. Also, a big thank you to Master Donato Nardizzi for teaching the introduction to the ITF Kids Program.
The venue was filled with a very high energy all weekend, which contributed to the great atmosphere during the course. The weekend was not only highlighted by the fantastic seminar, but also the Masters Examination which had 6 candidates promoted to 7th Dan and 2 promoted to 8th Dan.
The weekend also offered a great opportunity for our participants to socialize and reacquaint with TKD friends from across the globe, highlighted by a Las Vegas show for the IIC instructors and a wonderful banquet for all the participants. Many participants also enjoyed the fabulous sites and events on the Las Vegas strip.
The Original Taekwon-do Federation of America again thanks all for their support of this event and we hope to see you again in the future!
Master Vincent A. Affatigato
