The 17th Annual Yushen Lai’s Invitational Taekwondo Championship

Published by MasterLai on May 25th, 2015


As we celebrate our 17th Anniversary, we are excited to announce that this year our tournament will be sanctioned by the USAT. As an official event all competitors will have the opportunity to gain points towards the USAT National Point Ranking System which will enable them to gain higher seeding at national level competitions. Participating referees will also earn credit for their next rank upgrade. We are also proud to be offering USAT format Competition Sport Poomsae for all black belt divisions. Competitors may use this tournament to help prepare for the upcoming USAT State Qualifier Events.

As you all may know, events produced by my team are well known for their use of the Automated Match Scheduling (AMS) System. The system removes the staging area process, thus eliminating unnecessary wait times for competitors. To ensure tournament efficiency and fairness, all rings will be equipped with electronic scoring systems.

We will make every attempt to make this event as fair and enjoyable for all participants as possible and it is my sincere hope that we will exceed your expectations.

On behalf of my tournament staff I would like to thank all Masters for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you again on February 8, 2014 at CSU Dominguez Hills. We wish the best of luck to those competitors with the courage to compete and the desire to excel.
