19th Lee H. Park Team Championships

The 19th Lee H. Park Championships was a complete, outstanding day of competition, demonstrations, learning and fun!  372 Moo Sul Kwan martial art students and instructors celebrated our 9th CTI Hanmadang at Alameda International Junior/Senior High School in Lakewood, Colorado.

The LHP Team Championships is a day of peace and celebration of Moo Sul Kwan and founder Great Grandmaster Lee H. Park.   There were exciting competitions for all belt levels and ages in;  Team Poomse, Team One-Step Sparring, Team Breaking, Team Staff and more like the Most Kicks in a CTI Minute and CTI Basic Challenge and more!
