I began my TaeKwon Do journey over a decade ago after I started my kids in it. I realized that it was something that I could do with my kids and build a relationship that is not the same as watching them play sports.
I’m a 3rd Degree Black Belt certified by the World TaeKwon Do Alliance and train under 6th Degree Gary Bourgeois and 9th Degree Grand Master Scott McNeely.
I received my certified Lead Instructor certificate under the same organization and earned my Black Collar back in 2018.
Starting in 2015 I have also been a 8 time National Champion in the World TaeKwon Do Alliance in both Patterns and Sparring as well as winning Bronze in the 2017 TaeKwon Do Alliance/ TI International Goodwill Games.
I took over the school when my instructor Gary Bourgeois moved to Texas to serve in the Military.
It has been a amazing journey helping and teaching young and older students realize their goals of doing a Martial Art. It is a journey that you can take your entire life and build skills and make friendships with people who share the same love of the art.
