Region 12 (Mexico) UPDATE November 11, 2008

TO: WTSDA Masters, Instructors and members of Mexico:
FROM: Region 12 Director Master Larry D'Ercole
2260 Main St. #9 Chula Vista, CA. 91911
Tel. 619/429-9122 e-mail mastrlarry@aol.com

Thank you for your participation and assistance in last weeks Regional Championship in Ensenada, B.C.. It was wonderful to have our family gathering and enjoy the hospitality of the event host, BSBN Victor Vea and his team. We are grateful for his efforts to make the event special and accommodating.

1. Our DAN members in Mexico are growing and we feel that one of the next goals for our association is to establish an annual MEXICO DAN CAMP. The camp would be an essential training tool and have a major influence for DAN members seeking higher promotion in WTSDA. I have asked several Masters to research various locations for the camp so that we may consider the most economical and logical site. We will welcome anyone's ideas and suggestions in order to begin this project.

2. In preparation for future Regional and National Championships. We would like to create a Black Belt Show for the opening ceremonies of each event.
The Black Belt Show will consist of DAN members only and each school will have approximately 2:00 minutes for their performance. The combination of all the schools performances will create approximately a 20 minute show.
Also, each performance must have it's own music.
For the best results we would want to collect and combine all of the music collected onto one CD. In this way the show can run without interruptions. Please begin your music selection and your ideas for your schools 2:00 minute section. Please select and send me your music as soon as possible and I will convert it all onto one CD and mail it back to you. Send me the music (CD) via mail or e-mail soon.
I would like to begin the BLACK BELT SHOW project for the next Championship scheduled for February 2009.

3. The 2009 Sonora State Championship will be held in Guaymas, Sonora at the end of February. The exact date will be confirmed soon. The host of the event is BSBN Jose Duenas Soto and directed by Master Santos Gomez. For more information please contact Master Santos Gomez at: santostsd@hotmail.com.

4. After careful consideration we are excited to announce the site of the 2009 Mexico National Championship. Please reserve the weekend of November 6-8, 2009. The site will be Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Hosts of the event BSBN Rodolfo Serna & Pablo Cervantes. This is a new city with a new school and new instructors. Special Guest for this event is Grandmaster Jae C Shin.

5. A reminder that all DAN members are required to renew their DAN membership and teaching licences for 2009. Please complete your renewal by December.

Tang Soo!

10º Campeonato Sudamericano WTSDA 2007

The (Campeonato Sudamericano WTSDA) was again celebrated on December 9th at the Club Independente in Avellaneda, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Our special guest included many of the Masters from the recent Latin American Masters Camp (LMAC) and of course our special guest, Grandmaster J.C. Shin.


During opening ceremonies a traditional WTSDA Masters and SAM DAN demonstration preceded a masters promotion ceremony. Hundreds of students and spectators observed as the Grandmaster KNIGHTED the new ranks to; Master Hugo Frattini of Avellaneda, Argentina 5th DAN and Master Victor Jara of Santiago, Chile to 5th DAN. Also promoted were two new 4th DAN, Master Christian Alvarez and Master Rodrigo Frattini both of Buenos, Argentina. Congratulations!

Latin America Masters Clinic (LAMC) IV


The Latin America Masters Camp (LAMC) was held this past December 6-8th near Buenos Aires, Argentina. This being our 4th year, the Camp is steadily developing in size and in function. Comparatively dwarfed by the veteran USA Masters Camp, however the LAMC holds a character all its own. The Camp is held at the Casa San Jose, a religious retreat facility about an hours ride outside the city of Buenos Aires. The dormitories and connecting salon facility are reminiscent of the first Camps of St. Leo Monastery of Florida in the early '90's. Much of the training is conducted in the solitude of the outdoors on ample grounds and under green canopies of shade trees. Argentina is located in the Southern hemisphere and December marks the end of the school year and the beginning of summer. Visiting masters from the North American freeze find this to be a welcomed treat. There have been a number foreign masters that have made the adventure to Argentina. This year (2007) included Master Mike Kaye from Pennsylvania, Master Ken Purnell from California, and Master Mike Inoshita from the Chicago area. They, together with our Argentine and Chilean amigo masters promote the synergy that is uniquely World Tang Soo Do. Special talents and specialties of the visiting Masters present ideal training opportunities for our Southern family and of course the classes conducted by the Grandmaster provide exceptional learning experiences and impressions.
We must remind ourselves of the privilege and value of having our Kwan Chang Nim offering his knowledge and experience to our own personal development. We also are appreciative of Masters Hugo and Rodrigo Frattini of for their tedious work coordinating all of the logistics of this international program. The Latin America Masters Camp is looking for a few good masters to join us in December for future adventures in beautiful South America.

Tang Soo!
