2014 US Open Hanmadang Colorado Springs, CO, USA

There were over 400 competitors at the 2014 Hanmadang competition. Master Kim was an official *and* competitor at this competition. This was the first National Open Hanmadang that was held in the U.S. This was a great opportunity for Americans to compete in this competition without traveling overseas. Master Kim would like students from our school to try their competitive skills at the next Hanmadang.
