I started my first formal martial art experience at Master Gorino Taekwondo.
I embrace adversity, it is what keeps me going. Through time I improved my physical abilities and knowledge of the art. I attribute my self-improvement to the great instructors throughout my experience. The instructors are welcoming, kind, and patient with you. Eventually, I had the pleasure of teaching. There is beauty in helping others and seeing their good outcomes. There’s something special when people come to you with gratitude for your part in their progress. I developed fruitful bonds that have led to collaborations and genuine friendships.
When I met with Master Gorino for the first time, I was ready to sign up my sons to take Taekwondo.
My sons were nervous so Master Gorino said the trial was for the family and I could not say no with my sons looking at me. I was way out of my comfort zone. My sons and I have now been black belts for almost a year. Taekwondo helped us bond with each other as they see it’s ok to make mistakes and try even when you think you are not good at it. It helped us stay healthy and not go stir crazy during COVID. It has allowed us to create friendships and my sons to gain confidence in so many areas.
Since starting at the Williamsville location, my son has learned skills that he carries into his life outside of the Dojang.
He is more lively at school, more helpful around the house, and more competitive in his other sports. I wanted Tae Kwon Do to be something that gave him the drive and motivation to become better in all facets of his life, and that is exactly what has happened. I’m proud to see the determination in his spirit to become better and perform his patterns with more precision. On top of the progress with the martial art, Tae Kwon Do is teaching him how to be a well-rounded person in society, and I have Grand Master Gorino and Master Sharratt to thank for that

A LETTER FROM MASTER GORINO
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.
