About this pro

I have been teaching Taekwondo martial arts for over 45 years.  I have competed in at least 100 karate tournaments.  My main passion now is teaching and passing on the knowledge I have to the next generation of children, young adults, and families.  I help new students set short, mid, and long term goals.  I help them achieve those goals and much, much more.  I have been in the martial arts for almost 50 years.  I am a certified Grand Master in Taekwondo and hold the rank of 9th degree black belt.  I have traveled and taught in a few different conntries.  I have been featured in two association magazines.  I have received numerous awards including instructor and school of the year.  I have also been inducted into the Hall of Fame in a couple of martial arts associations.  I am also quaiified in a number of areas such as joint manipulation, pressure points, rape prevention, and weapons.  A prospective student or parent may view my website at  I am also listed on Facebook under Master Pierce's Taekwondo.

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

I work with each new student on an individual basis, even in a group session.  Either myself or a national certified instructor work with them  one-on-one.  Each student progresses at their on rate of speed.  If a student learns fast, they are not held back.  If a student needs to progress a a slower pace, then we take the time to work with them. 

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

Master Pierce's Taekwondo has an introductory membership.  It is 3 weeks of unlimited classes for $39.  This also includes a free Taekwondo uniform (valued at $35).  After the introductory membership, a new student or parent may choose from a couple of options.  The current monthly dues are $100-$110.  Additional family members receive a 30%-40% discount on monthly dues.  There is also have other incentives that save the student a substantial amount of money.

How did you get started teaching?

I was serving in the U.S. Air Force as a Security Policeman at Osan Air Base, Korea, 1969-1972.  I found a martial arts class on base and began training in January 1970.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with many students from all walks of life.  I have had many students who were mentally and physically gifted.  I have also had many students who faced different challenges.  I have successfully taught students with physical and mental challenges.  I have had many children that have trained over the years that have had some form of ADHD and high functioning autisum.  if a student has the will to learn, I have the way to teach them.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My personal rewards are observing students that have overcome a personal challenge  or may have successfully passed a promotional belt test or have competed in a tournament and received an award.

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

Someone who is interested in the martia arts, they should call or stop in and ask as many questions as they can.  They should also ask if they can receive a free lesson or two.  This will give the individual an opportunity to evaluate the instructor and his teaching methods.  Parents of students should slways be allowed to observe their children during any class.

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

A studnet or parent should think about what their individual goals or needsare.  They should be prepared to ask about what is included in their training.  The main questions is how much are lessons going to cost.  A student should also ask about training equipment, belt tests and tournament requirements and cost.
