Obstacles do not limit us – they define us.

Torn meniscus, carpal tunnel syndrome, rib contusion – no matter what gets thrown my way, I swear to train as hard as I expect my students to train.

I will lead by example.

I will honor character above skill.

I will continue to honor the Black Belt pledge I took in 2008 – to be loyal to my school, my country, my master, and my sport of Taekwondo!
