Certified 7th degree Black belt privately trained by 3 Korean Grand Masters. 40 years experience. Teaching the ITF patterns from Gen Choi Hong Hi. I will commit myself to your martial arts success with every class.
Getting to pass on the most dynamic technique for hand to hand self defense, competition patterns and sparring handed down to me by 3 of the Worlds greatest S.Korean Grandmasters in Tae Kwon Do history. I love interacting with individuals of all ages and look forward to helping them achieve their martial arts goals.
This TaeKwanDo school is one of the best in town. The kids learn a lot e.g. Self Discipline, respect others and etc.. I personally trust them with my son very much because they are trustworthy. They treat my son as is he is thiers.
Most caring and dedicated instructor in the katy area
I appreciate the firm but patient instruction that Christopher uses in his teaching. He is obviously highly skilled in his art.
I have known the Santarose Family for over a year now and study under Master Joseph Santarose at the Katy Location. Grand Master Frank Santarose presides over our belt tests. I have always been impressed with their professionalism and ability to teach. Grand Master Santarose is always working hard me and the rest of the class to be our best. I have noticed all of them lead by example - demand excellence and give it. If you are anywhere near a location for this school - don't hesitate - sign up.
Discussion on the students goals and what they are looking for in their lessons and practice. I will show them basic motions, stances and movement to relax their muscles help their flexibility and focus. We discuss the point of no misuse whatsoever except in the event of needing to defend. I also discuss proven defensive postures, hand positions for most efficient blocking. I then move to basic striking to precise points to stop the threat of the criminal attacker or bully. From there we move forward each lesson with repetition, precise focus and correction of skills to make the student the best they can be in their martial arts journey.

Unified Tae Kwon Do Open Championship 2017. All of our Black belt certifications and especially my nephew Joseph Santarose's 5th Dan test.
Watch then closely. Listen to their direction. Do they have a fancy school? Fancy uniform? Where did their Certification come from? Can they execute the skill themselves or do they just point and yell. There are millions of pretenders out there. I hate to say it but there are MANY instructors who SHOULD NOT BE TEACHING FOR MANY REASONS.
The level of effort it takes to really become proficient and be able to apply the skills taught if neccessary. Consistency is the key. What do you want out of your training? Are you willing to dedicate time to your practice?
