What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I began training at this very school as a teen and through the years I've experienced first hand what Taekwondo can do for individuals. I've seen children cultivate confidence, self control and more. It is a dream come true for me to pass on this knowledge and experience to other people. I love it
What do you love most about your job?
For me, I love seeing a child accomplish something that they never dreamed they could do. To see their self confidence grow with each passing test or obstacle is a huge reward. I love having a positive impact on a student's life.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
My best reaction was hearing from a parent that their child no longer talked about feeling picked on at school. They said their child was happy again and no longer seemed concerned or even mentioned being picked on. His confidence had grown so much that it just no longer bothered him. Wonderful!
