I started practicing the art of Tae Kwon Do as a teenager in 1974 under Grandmaster Chung Kim. I had the honor and privilege of being among Grandmaster Chung Kim’s, the first generation of Tae Kwon Do students, here in the United States. I served over 32 years as a Police Officer for the City of Rock Island, before my retirement in 2018.

During my years on the police department, I was a certified Defensive Tactics Instructor and Instructor-Trainer for the PR-24 and ASP Batons. The knowledge and skill I obtained from practicing Tae Kwon Do under Grandmaster Chung Kim, has been very beneficial to me throughout my life and my career as a police officer. One of the benefits that come from practicing Tae Kwon Do is that it unites people who might not have ever met each other in life, but they are now together because of their love for the art of Tae Kwon Do.
