I started Soo Bahk Do training when I was 12 years old. I had a difficult life and a desire to be able to protect myself. I learned how to set goals and accomplish them. I learned how to be confident, secure, and at peace with myself. I learned so much more than I can explain here. I am so very grateful to my instructor's, Kyo Sa Nim Beth Miekos, Sa Bom Nim Hanke, Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang. Soo Bahk Do taught me to be a person of character.
