Grand Master Gorino has taught me Tae Kwon-Do since I was 9 years old.
Now I am 19 years old and the benefits of the program have taught me more than any other sport, or school program can even reach for. Grand Master Gorino’s commitment to excellence and his love for his students shows in his teaching. Growing up with ADHD, Dyslexia and many other learning disabilities, Grand Master Gorino taught me to never let these get in the way of my goals. He taught me to never even think of the option of giving up. Putting yourself or your child into the program is the best investment you can make.
Being a young multicultural girl, it was scary to feel unwelcomed in certain places but at Master Gorino’s, every culture, gender, race, and religion is accepted, respected, and loved.
The dojang has given me a wonderful family, including many people who I would never have met otherwise. We all come together with the common interest of Taekwondo but we all leave the dojang with new and different experiences. Many of my classmates are friends that I will keep in touch with for the rest of my life; even though we all come from different backgrounds, we have learned to acknowledge and appreciate our differences.
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.

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.
