"As Master Instructor, I teach every class offered and this is something you won't find at most taekwondo schools! All of my students, from White Belt to Black Belt, benefit from my 40 years of experience!"
"Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential."
