“I‘m a fourth degree black belt with ATA Martial Arts, and the owner of STA. Training in martial arts for 17 years, and instructing for the later 15. My dream has always been to share my passion for martial arts, inspire others, and develop strong individuals through Songahm Taekwondo training. I first joined ATA at the beginning of 2003, attending my first tournament roughly 6 months later. By 2005 I earned my first degree black belt and won my first State Champion titles. Three years later, in 2008, I had become fully certified as an instructor and tournament judge. Until my departure from the US in 2014, I worked as an instructor, and continued competition; winning consecutive state titles, as well as District Champion titles, and earned a spot in several World Champion opportunities, resulting in 2 Bronze and 1 Silver medal. I now hope to change lives through Songahm Taekwondo training in Devon. The friends I made, the life skills I gained, the knowledge I obtained, the passion I still have, begs to be shared. I can’t wait to get you started on your own ATA journey toward black belt, success, and positive future!”
