The 2019 Southeastern Regional Championships took
place in Cleveland, GA on April 26th and 27th. The
tournament was held at the White County Parks and
Recreation Center in the beautiful North Georgia
mountains within eye shot of Mount Jonah.
Everything kicked off Friday night with our Black
belt test. We had an amazing test with a strong
testing group of over 30 on the floor. It ended with
Robert "RJ" Scott of Eagle Leadership Martial Arts
winning best of test for the adults and Jossam Talde
from Chandler Family Martial Arts winning for the
The Championships started strong on Saturday with
black belt competition. Black belts from as far as
Louisiana, Florida, Alabama, South Carolina and
Georgia attended. There was a very intense battle
for the championship titles. In the end the adult
woman's cup went to Heather Trundle from Karate
World, and the men's cup went to William Townsend of
Eagle Leadership Martial Arts.
That evening, everyone had one last chance to get
together and celebrate with all of their friends and
martial arts family at Troll Tavern in Helen, Ga.
There were well over 60 people who celebrated along
with the Kwan Jang Nim the many personal and group
victories of the day. It was another "Pilsung"
moment and was followed by more good times in the
small Bavarian styled town of Helen, Ga.
It was a great weekend and another great experience
for all who attended. We look forward to seeing
everyone again at this year's Southeast Black Belt
Camp, Instructor Training Symposium, and Fall cycle
Dan Shim Sa on November 1st through 3rd at Camp ASCCA in Jackson's Gap, Alabama.
Until then, train hard and train often.
