Photographer Carl Solder spent the early days of July roving the San Jose (Calif.) McEnery Convention Center, capturing the essence of the 2014 USA Taekwondo National Championships on camera.

Now, he’s sifted through the thousands of images and chosen 250 of the best ones to share with the USAT community. This digital photo book (to view it, click HERE) covers the July 1-7 event in its entirety.

Overall, the tournament featured more than 3,800 participating athletes and more than 700 coaches, making it the largest taekwondo event in the world.

Solder also provided similar digital photo books for the 2013 USAT National Championships and the 2014 U.S. Open. You can contact him at You can also view more of his work HERE and HERE.
