Hoping our friends have fun.

The nation's largest national tae kwon do tournament, featuring 2,400 athletes and 700 coaches, converges on Fort Lauderdale this week. The AAU National Youth and Adult Taekwondo Championships will be held Wednesday through Saturday at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.

The event has grown in popularity. Since 2002, participation went from 942 to 2,400. This four-day event will also serve as the qualifying event for the National AAU Team Trials.
