Student of Teaching
At the age of 5 my family and I came to the US from South Korea; Colorado has been my home ever since. I began my studies of martial arts at around 13 with ITF Tae Kwon Do. I began competing and teaching during this time and had the opportunity to learn from many great coaches. I continues my teaching as a second job during my stay at Colorado University at Boulder. I began testing my Tae Kwon Do at a local MMA gym and university martial arts club to assess my effectiveness in challenge fights against different systems. After the university when I came back to colorado springs I continue continued to hone my system meeting jujistu coach Ben westrich and my muay thai coach Pat Cross. I took a few years break from formal training to start a couple businesses but in the process my health catastrophically failed me so I did the only thing I knew would bring my health back. I called up my old friend Ben Westrich who had recently opened up Warrior Fitness Center. So I began again my training in Muay Thai, Brazilian Jujitsu, and other grappling systems such as judo and wrestling to supplement my jujitsu. My health improved and I began my coaching at the gym to continue the line of my coaches knowledge. It has been a great journey in the last 25 years of martial arts learning so much, meeting amazing people, and getting to understand who I am. Looking forward to what comes next.
