This year's Symposium was fantastic! Moo Sul Kwan upper belts got together at the Inn at SilverCreek in Granby, Colorado, for a three day weekend of training and fun.
The AMASEA and Moo Sul Kwan provide its instuctors and future instructors consistant education and training in their martial art. The American Martial Arts Sports and Education Association was founded by Great Grandmaster Lee H. Park, founder of Moo Sul Kwan in the United States in 1981, to further the expertise of its instructors.
The past seventeen Symposiums have been held at different incredible places in Colorado, from Winter Park to the UCCS Campus, to Breckenridge and more. This year's annual special upper belt event took place on October 11 - 13.
The theme of the 18th Moo Sul Kwan Black Belt Symposium was, "Again and Again." There were seminars classes in advanced kicking, poomse, teaching, staff, self-defense, sparring and much more. Events, such as the Symposium Adventures V and the Symposium Saturday Night Banquet kept everyone filled with many experiences!
This year's MSK Black Belt Symposium staff included; Grandmaster James M. Sautel, Master Merinda J. Sautel, Master John T. Sautel and Master Erik R. Albrechtson.
Our own black belt band, Hoshinmotion, played at the Saturday evening Symposium Banquet. Between songs, special CTI World Tour Etiquette Commercials were shown featuring the theme, "Etiquette in South Korea" to the delight of the crowd.
The next CTI event is the annual Lee H. Park Team Championships in December. It will be our 5th CTI Hanmadang and is at Alameda International High School.
