My journey began when I was 4 years old, in Seoul, Korea. I earned my first and, soon after, second Dan Black Belt whilst in Korea, at the world’s taekwondo headquarters – Kukkiwon.
After my family emigrated to the US in 1989, I maintained my desire to improve in the art of taekwondo. So I decided to continue my training and became 3rd Dan at just 19 years old. At this point my interest in supporting others grew into a passion for wanting to see the art taught as it had been taught to me. So I began teaching lessons at a local studio, giving me experience of teaching taekwondo before opening Han Bros with Master Jason.
To not only be the best taekwondo master, but also the best teacher I could be, I continued my personal training to become a 4th Dan Master Instructor in 2004 and then onto a 5th Dan in 2008.
