What is Taekwondo?
Tae “Foot”, Kwon “Hand”, Do “discipline”… The art of the hand and foot.
Taekwondo is an ancient martial art that originated in the country we now call Korea. Taekwondo surpasses physical training skills. For many, it is a lifestyle meeting strict rules of self-discipline. The ancient teachings of martial arts show students a way to control their emotions and channel their energy in a healthy, productive form.
The most devoted students believe Taekwondo is a lifestyle. Others believe it is an art form of self-expression. However, it is always a discipline.

I Started tae kwon do in November of 1976, in Pleasanton, TX when I was 8 years old. I received my first black belt in December of 1979. I trained with many different masters due to my parents moving us from city to city before settling in the Spring Branch area and training under Master Jin Hak Cho and raising a family of my own with two kids.
Participating in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts with my son for eleven years as den leader and assistant scout master. In July of 2010 after training for thirty three years, I fulfilled my life long dream of opening my own tae kwon do school.
