Grand Master Doug Fuechsel

Grand Master Fuechsel opened his first full time dojang in Salt Lake City in 1976. He moved to Colorado Springs where he served as team captain of the resident program at the Olympic Training Center and was an Olympic spokesperson from 1986-1991. From that time through 2004, he served on the national governing body of the United States Taekwondo Union as a state president, secretary general, and delegate at large. As a competitor he has been a national sparring champion and world forms champion. In 1998, the United States Taekwondo Union chose him as instructor of the year.
.
Currently, Grand Master Fuechsel is an eighth degree black belt and is enjoying his 39th year of training Taekwondo students. He is the Executive Director of the US Open Taekwondo Hanmadang, which is celebrating its 11th year in Colorado Springs this year. During the Opening Ceremonies, he will be speaking to us about the new 529 Educational Sponsorships Program that he has created, called the Championship Education Fund.

“I was in attendance at Oregon’s first Hanmadang and witnessed first hand the success
of the event. Washington, California and Oregon have a large martial art population.
Now that schools all over the Pacific Northwest have heard of the event, they will come.”
