65 years ago in Fairbanks, Alaska, I was a green belt on the U.S. Air Force Judo Team. As they say, time flies by.

However, I wanted to get back into better shape and learn more self defense. Master Gorino and I had some frank conversations about my safety and if this would be a good fit, since I was 85 years old at the time. I am currently an 86 year old yellow belt and look forward to earning my green stripe rank shortly. All ages are welcome to join…even an old goat like me!

Although my daughter has just begun her lessons, Master Sharratt is a positive influence on my daughter.

She has made herself available outside of class time and genuinely cares for my daughter’s  well being (and all her students).  I feel that Master Sharratt is one of those humble unsung heroes that takes small steps that have large and lasting implications.

Colton started TKD at Master Gorino’s in August of 2014, a few weeks before his sixth birthday.

He had ADD, speech and reading issues and a learning disability to boot. We were told that TKD would help in all of these areas. So we signed him up, best decision we ever made! When he started, he was shy and really had little to no confidence in himself and no real friends at school. Master Gorino’s TKD helped him become strong and confident, he is definitely not shy anymore and he has made some truly incredible friends. Finally after watching Colton train for 8 years I decided to join myself. It has been life changing! I’m becoming stronger, I’m learning techniques I never thought I’d ever be able to do.

Where is your victory? It’s easy to find when you win. It’s harder to find when you lose. You probably don’t even look for your victory after a loss. Before embracing Martial Arts, I didn’t always. It’s easy to become too focused on what we didn’t gain. Losing is something we’re taught to avoid but losing isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you.

Pil-Sung means “certain victory.” Certain victory means harvesting a win out of everything, especially when life doesn’t favor you. It means using every circumstance as a teacher, a path to becoming who you are yet to be.

Register for our trial program and see how Tae Kwon-Do can help you become whatever it is you’re yet to be.
