I began my study of Taekwondo in 1989 in Knoxville, as a student in the old USTA, under Mr. James Rich. I earned 1st degree black belt rank from him in 1993. In the years since, I have continued my study of Taekwondo, and currently hold 4th Dan rank through both the AAU and AKATO. In recent years, I have continued my study of Taekwondo under the guidance of Master Keith Yates (10th Dan) of Dallas, Texas. In addition to Taekwondo, Master Yates has also gotten me started on the study of Kobudo.
