A grand total of 113 people registered to compete marking a massive 25% increase in the number of competitors from just one year ago and a testament to the growth of schools in the region.

The beautiful B Resort & Spa, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, welcomed the Atlantic-Pacific Tang Soo Do Federation for their Annual Ko Dan Ja Retreat / Shim Sa and Bi-Annual Championship event. Competitors traveled from near and far in anticipation of a gathering that would include representation from as far as our sister federation, Asia Pacific Tang Soo Do, in Australia!

The Three Treasures: Compassion, Moderation and Humility was the theme for the 2018 Ko Dan Ja (Masters Retreat) and Shim Sa (testing) held July 18th and 19th. From start to finish, the opportunities to learn and enjoy fellowship were limitless. Masters and Masters Candidates came with their cups empty and ready to be filled with information to bring back to their schools and students. All participants knew that whenever this group comes together, there is always an opportunity to learn something, from anyone, no matter their rank. Having the humility to know that you are always a student, learning and absorbing everything presented to you was undoubtedly the best way to enjoy these two days.
