American Open Tae Kwon Do Championships held at CSU-East Bay.
The USF Taekwondo Team focuses on Olympic style Taekwondo as well as development of self-defense skills. Participants of all skill levels (even absolute beginners) are welcome. The team is coached by Mark Miller, a fourth-degree,
Kukkiwon-certified black belt who has practiced Taekwondo since 1985 and is a faculty member in the USF College of Arts and Sciences.
