Hi to all Martial Arts Community Family members,

We are excited to announce that the Arnold Battle of Columbus World Games is establishing the qualifier circuit to promote the Arnold Battle of Columbus 2019 World Games.

The Arnold Battle of Columbus (ABOC) has succeeded for 42 years with integrity and reputation, it wouldn't be possible without all of your dedication and commitment.

I'd like to ask you again to take a positive leadership role for this very first ABOC qualifier on September 8th, 2018 here in Columbus.

Please review the attached poster above with information and register as soon as possible. The online registration form will be up very soon.

Please post this info to all available forums and encourage your students to register to participate, let it begin with your registration first.

Thank you all again for your continuous support.

Yours truly,

SGM Choi
