Mayor Bao Nguyen of Garden Grove, Ca officially proclaimed July 2, 2016 as National Soo Bahk Do® Celebration Day in Garden Grove, Ca and presented the official proclamation plaque during the opening ceremonies of the 2016 National Festival.
Since 1978 an army of volunteer members have worked together each year to produce and host the United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation® National Festival.
Until you have served on a National Festival Committee or workgroup and hosted the National Festival, it can be difficult to comprehend how enormous an undertaking it is to host hundreds of members and seniors from all over the United States plus inter national guests while seeking to assure an enjoyable and rewarding experience for every attendee.
Dear Federation Members, Families, and Friends,
On behalf of the Federation’s Board of Directors I would like to welcome each of you to the 2016 National Festival in Anaheim, California.
Thank you to the Kwan Jang Nim for his vision and leadership. I would also like to thank Region 9 for hosting this event and all the many volunteers for their tireless and selfless efforts.
Hosting a national event is not an easy task and you all deserve our gratitude and appreciation.
