Legacy Weekend is a celebration of Taekwon-Do’s founder, General Choi Hon Hi, and his legacy.

The annual weekend Legacy event was created to honor the legacy of General Choi. The weekend-long event is open to Taekwon-Do practitioners of all ranks and ages, and typically consists of a promotional test, workshop, a full day seminar, and a Saturday evening banquet and celebration.
