I began martial arts as a clumsy nine year old. Studying Tang Soo Do improved my coordination, endurance, and confidence. I continue to study because I enjoy teaching and it challenges me physically and mentally.

I started training in Martial Arts because it was something I could do together with my son.  It has allowed us to travel to lots of different places, including Disney World to compete on an international level. It’s been truly amazing to spend time with my son like this.
