About this pro

We have been teaching traditional Korean martial Arts in Bensalem for over 25 years.  Our classes are divided by age (as young as 4 to senior cirizens) and experience to enhance learning.  We use the martial art of Tang Soo Do to alow our students to apply the concepts to better all areas of their lives. Children are required to bring in their report cards and those with all "A's" receive a Scholastic Acheivement Award, and those with all "A's" and "B's" a Grandmaster's Award.  Before children can test for higher belts they must bring in a signed form from their teacher and parents stating they are showing excellence in all areas of their lives.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Students first take a provate lesson to learn some of the very basic concepts of Tang Soo Do, which also allows the student to meet us and for us to evaluate the student.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Our school is a World Tang Soo Do Certified Studio and was nominated as a WTSDA Hall of Fame School.  We have 3 Master instructors and have traing many Regional and World Champions.  

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

We offer a 1 month trial program for $99.00, which includes a uniform.  If the student elects to continue we charge $125.00 a month for lessons.

How did you get started teaching?

I was trained by Grandmaster Jae Chul Shin in the early 1980's and began teaching as an assistant at World Headquarters.  I opened up my first studio in Center City Philadelphia in the late 1980's.  I became the General Manager for Grandmaster Shin's three schools (Philadlephia, Trenton and Bensalem), and then became owner of the Bensalem location which is now Nate Gordon's Black Belt Academy. 

What types of students have you worked with?

We have "Little Dragon" classes for children 4 to 6 years old.  We then offer older children and teens classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels.  We also offer classes for adults.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would first visit the school and watch a class and interact with some of the parents and students.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How long has the school been in existence?  What is the experience of the instructor(s)? What is the student to teacher ration in the average class?
