Are you looking for a fun and exciting way to achieve your fitness goals while learning how to protect yourself?
I remember when I was child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!
I earned my black belt at age 18, and was only 19 when I opened my first Taekwondo school in Paraguay. 50 schools later, I continue my commitment to serving and empowering the community of Florida, Colorado, California, Nevada, Texas, Michigan, Virginia by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.
