Welcome Visitor:


I started Training in Taekwon-do in the fall of 1974 with Mr. Rick Dyer. I was to test for my Gold belt in Feb. But I had the end of my elbow broken off sparing with a Green belt in class.  I was unable to test.  Due to lack of atendance the class closed soon after the testing. In the summer of 1976 The Taekwon-do class was reorganized and began again.  My son Chris and I started again.  I tested for my Green belt in May of 1976 and have been training in Taekwon-do since.
