He is a great instructor with good morals and knows deep history of Korean Martial Arts. His passion shows what a great leader he will be to your child(ren), and also offers adult classes. I’m one of his students from back in the 90s and highly recommend this academy. I also brought my kids to attend his classes and they love it always a good discipline to get kids involved with.

Master Frank is an excellent teacher and role model. My son truly loves being his student and looks forward to going to class. Master Frank has an excellent balance of learning and fun at his school. All the kids really look like they are enjoying themselves and are a great bunch of kids. I’m very happy with our decision to enroll him at this school.
