1st Dan (1st Degree) World Taekwondo Chungdokwan Federation Certified Black Belt

Started Taekwondo in:


My favorite kick is:

Inverted Roundhouse (Sneaky) or Reverse Sidekick (Sneaky with Power) … I also like punching through bricks

One of my favorite forms is:

Gye-Baek – It is a very different form compared to the others I’ve learned thus far. It has a less repeatable pattern than other forms.


Koryo – It has many powerful techniques within it that are fun to do!

One of the life lessons I’ve learned from Taekwondo is:

You never know what you are fully capable of until you try. Embrace the risk of failure for it will allow you to find victory.

One of the things I love about helping other students is:

Making them feel welcome at their first classes and helping them be excited about taking martial arts. Then, it’s watching them grow.

One of the things I like about Miamitown Martial Arts is:

The willingness of people to support others during their Taekwondo journey…. including cheering for you when you finally get that ‘hard to get’ board break!
