USA Taekwondo is proud to announce that the U.S. Open will be returning to the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino from Feb. 19-23, 2013. The LVH hosted a very successful 2012 U.S. Open, one of the most prestigious and highest-ranked taekwondo open tournaments sanctioned by the World Taekwondo Federation.

“USA Taekwondo is extremely excited to be returning to the LVH in Las Vegas for our 2013 U.S. Open," said USA Taekwondo CEO Eric Parthen. "After an incredibly successful 1800-plus athlete, 64 country event last year, we are expecting to exceed those numbers this year and maintain the U.S. Open’s position as one of the top taekwondo competitions in the world.”

Once again, the U.S. Open will be sanctioned by the WTF and will utilize the Daedo electronic body protectors. The LVH is now accepting room reservations and you can book your room at https://resweb.passkey.com/go/USATAEKWONDO2013.
