On July 7, 2006, thirteen Masters were honored by Grandmaster Jae C. Shin and the World Tang Soo Do Association for their devotion to the Art of Tang Soo Do for 30 years or more. A special dinner recognizig their achievement was attended by 250 members of the WTSDA at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Ca. Spouses were in attendance and were also honored for their assistance and support during the careers of their Tang Soo Do driven spouses. This is the second 30-Year Masters Dinner and these 13 Masters joined the previous nine honorees from the 2002 dinner.

Many of the Masters who were honored were present at the genesis of the WTSDA and were instrumental during the development of the WTSDA. Each Master spoke with great passion about how they started in the WTSDA and how they first met Kwan Chang Nim.

Congratulations to these Masters who have shown that perserverance has been a true attribute on their respective roads of live.
