Tri-State Championship  Growing up in the Bronx I could've easily fallen into the wrong crowd. Taekwon-Do kept me on the right path. I started training at a very young age and it taught me to be self sufficient and determined to reach my goals. It gave me the opportunity to grow as a person and become physically, mentally and spiritually strong.

my first real test as a leader in the Marine Corps - Sergeant of the Marine Corps

It led me to serve in the Marine Corps for 8 years and later pursuing my career with the U.S State Department working abroad for 10.5 years.

Washington DCRecently returned to the U.S and opened my own martial arts and fitness studio so I can give back to the community and provide a positive venue where students learn self respect, determination, leadership and self worth.

Our short term goal for the program is to provide a one year scholarship to 50 inner city kids. Long term I wish to provide this program as a continuous affordable, publicly funded service to the underprivileged children of Jersey City and surrounding impoverished areas. This is just the beginning!

At the academy, students will learn the tenets of Taekwon-Do: Courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, indomitable spirit, honor, courage and commitment. My goal is to give a haven where I can share my experience and serve as a role model for others to emulate.

Academy's training center - Jersey City NJTo be a good teacher, one must be a good student. With every donation, you are helping shape a child's life. Let's create a better future and great leaders by focusing our positive energy onto these young children. Every child deserves to start over. So why not now?

I am very humbled having you as a member of my team. Help us reach our goal and provide a one year scholarship to 50 underprivileged inner city kids, better yet let's double it and go for 100 children! Let's be the big brother and sister I know we are and give them the experience of a lifetime.

We are grateful to have your support and look forward to accomplishing this goal together. Let's go team, I know we can do this! Let's promote health and wellness one person at a time.

Join our team and help us give back to the community by reaching out to children and giving them a location where they can learn self-value and taking them off the streets!

Let's make a strong positive impact!

Our goal is to become Black belts in life!
