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
Training at Master Gorino’s Tae Kwon Do has been a fantastic experience for our family, especially because we do it together; as a family.
There aren’t very many activities in our children’s lives that we get to play an actual active role in – having the same experience as they do, at the same time, allowing us to tell them we truthfully understand their experiences. Sometimes we can be their coach, or their chauffeur, and always their support system, cheering them on from the sidelines, but at Master Gorino’s we have the opportunity to go a step further. Together as a family we work on our physical and mental fitness, our control, and most importantly, our self confidence.
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.

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.
