To me, Martial Arts is an epic, mysterious adventure filled with excitement, challenges, secret knowledge, deep meaning, and purpose. I have been drawn to martial arts all of my life and have been involved in The Way for nearly 4 decades. I have had many excellent teachers and experiences during my life in martial arts, but my REAL journey began when I met Grandmaster Choe. Under the guidance of Grandmaster Choe, I have been able to experience martial arts as a student, friend, brother, competitor, champion, teacher, leader and master. Grandmaster’s ChungMu HapKiDo is a complete path, providing the ways and means for full development of body, mind, and spirit.
Personally one of the greatest joys in martial arts is helping others and witnessing the positive changes in students’ lives. The friendship and community that makes this powerful change possible is a living treasure. The respect in HapKiDo forges relationships with a level of consideration and regard that is rarely found elsewhere.
My life at Choe’s HapKiDo in Duluth, Georgia has come full circle with my 2 sons beginning their own journey in ChungMu HapKiDo. Martial Arts is a true force of good in the world, and it is an honor and blessing to be part of it.
