2012 USAT National Championships
(June 29 - July 4)

Our very own Junior & Senior National Team is back from Dallas!  And boy was it HOT!!  105 degrees on average! 

Our team members performed very well against some of the best TKD players our nation has to offer and many even earned medals in their respective divisions.  We would like to extend a special congratulations to Alex Fogarty in qualifying to compete for a spot on the USAT National Team at the next USA Taekwondo Team Trials! 

Here's the results:


For our KMAC National Team, Competition Class members and future competitors here is a good, simple quote to live by no matter what the result, win or lose:

“A champion is someone who does not settle for that day's practice, that day's match, or that day's performance. They are always striving to become better. They don't live in the past, they live in the present moment to prepare for the next competition.”

Awesome Job Team!  Thank you for representing KMAC pride at the 2012 National Championships!

Haley Kong

A GREAT YEAR FOR KMAC !

The team photo was taken in Tijuana,  Mexico on March 2010 where the Junior World Championships was held. Haley Kong from KMAC-HQ and two of our KMAC-Manila members earned their places on the USAT National Team.  This is a feat in itself, 
whereas only ten males and ten females qualify to represent the United States in this prestigious event. We are very proud that these three members of the USA National Team are our very own. This is the highest level of competition that a junior can accomplish
short of the Olympics. It was quite an experience to see the numerous countries of the world bringing their best qualified athletes to this immense competition. We thank the coaches, 
Master Henry Cruz of KMAC-Manila, Master Thomas Mar of KMAC-HQ and everyone that has supported these elite athletes.

Winning the AAU National Championship - A Parent's Perspective

It is often said that it takes a village to raise a child and that certainly rings true for taekwondo competitors as well. All of the members of the KMAC family offered advice and support and we realize that it truly takes an entire dojang to nurture a fighter.Haley-David

The architect of Haley's training of course is Grandmaster Jung. Without his voluminous knowledge, this win would not have been possible. His dreams and high aspirations propel us forward. Thank you for sharing your expertise and unwaveringconfidence. Master Mangonon's dedication as a coach is phenomenal. He offers the wisdom from one having been in the ring
and the perspective as seen from outside the ring. Thank you for the weekends that you spent away from your family, the time that you spent strategizing and agonizing, and most of all for your faith in Haley.

Thank you to Master Thomas Mar, Master Michael Mar, Master Choi, Master Mauricio and Master Aguirre for always stepping in with suggestions, new techniques and sharing your accumulated and hard-earned insights. You teach by offering both guidance and by sparring thereby providing

invaluable lessons. And thank you to Dr. Lee whose emphasis on strength and reflexes helped hone the body while preventing injuries.

haleyTo all of the dojang-mates who toil beside Haley, thank you for providing the camaraderie needed to continue. To all of the younger dojang-mates who look to Haley with expectations, thank you for being the inspiration. And to all of the parents who cheer, organize carpools, and remember the water bottles and Band-Aid, thank you for an incredible network of support.

Contrary to what many will say, winning a national title in taekwondo is not an individual accomplishment, but, as we have learned, it is a result of the
collective hopes and efforts of the entire KMAC family. And for all that and much more, we thank you.

Greg and Vanessa Kong

KMAC at the Nationals

For the past 25 consecutive years, KMAC has sent a team to Nationals, and 2008 was no different. Our competition team members were En-ta, Mark and Haley with Master Mangonon as coach -- a small but mighty contingent .

Mark and Haley participated in the AAU Nationals held in Madision, Wisconsin. kids
Haley beat her two opponents 6-0 and 8-1 to take the gold medal in the 14-17
year old flyweight division. Mark competed in the 12-13 year old red belt
division and won his two fights with an impressive 13-3 and 15-1 to earn the gold medal.

The USAT Junior National Championship was held in Detroit, Michigan. En-ta
debuted in his first Nationals by winning his initial fight 4-1. He earned a
bronze medal in the 14-15 year old red belt division. Both Mark and Haley fought tough
opening matches but did not win. However, Mark performed Palgwae-7 five times besting 22 other competitors to take the gold medal in forms.
