There is nothing more profound than watching someone being transformed through martial arts. Since my early days in college, I have had a passion for teaching Tae Kwon Do. I strive every day to increase my knowledge and understanding of the martial arts, while continually altering and improving my techniques. My goal is to help others discover what a positive impact martial arts can have on their lives.
