"For me, teaching Martial Arts is not only my livelihood, but a way of life. Having served 20 years in the U.S. military, I have seen growth and changes both positive and negative. Children of today are faced with a greater number of problems when I was growing up. Problems such as drugs, gangs, violence, and illiteracy are among my main concerns. As a parent I am concerned and as a martial arts instructor, I can be part of the solution. Tang Soo Do's positive direction has the ability to help a student develop self-esteem, integrity, and discipline."
