I have been training in the Korean martial art of Tae Kwon Do for the past sixteen years as well as teaching it for the last 8 years.


I have been training in the Korean martial art of Tae Kwon Do for the past sixteen years as well as teaching it for the last 8 years. I thought I was there to learn to kick and punch but then I began to realize that it is the philosophies and mental development that are the true bedrock of the sport, of everyday life, and of all learning. I hope to lead my students to the same realization.

Sure, teaching is about imparting knowledge and skills, but it is equally important to me to help my students develop the character, personality and positive moral and ethical traits needed to accomplish any task they attempt.

I want to influence my students in such a way that they form healthier relationships with friends and family, achieve better grades overall, avoid the negative influences that typically overwhelm young people, and become contributing members of their school and community. Coaching a particular sport or skill well may be the gauge by which the school administration evaluates my performance, but I believe that is only one relatively small aspect of a more important, “big picture” goal.
