JANUARY 2018 Black Belt Achievers!
All the hard work has paid off, Congratulations! We are very proud of you.

5th Degree
Master Mandy Hawes
"I started practicing with Kim's Taekwon Do in January of 2000. It has continuously provided a wealth of benefits, including physical fitness, self discipline, and a chance to be part of a tight knit martial arts community. None of this could be possible without the support of my family, who give me the opportunity to kick up a good sweat during the week, and all my Taekwon Do friends whom have been there to encourage me through this process. My deepest gratitude goes to all my instructors over the past 18 years for their guidance and care. A great big thank you to the Masters Brown for taking the OHSU school and myself under their wing these past five years. It has been an honor to be a part of Kim's Taekwon Do, and I hope to continue this journey for many more years to come. "

2nd Degree
Mr. Scott Brown
"I live in Seaside Oregon with my wife and four children. I work in real estate as a bank owned listing specialist. When I am not working, I like to take advantage of all of the outdoor recreation that our area provides. I started taking Taekwondo in 2011 with my son and three daughters - it's been a wonderful way to spend time with them doing something we all enjoy. Recently I have taken over as head instructor for Seaside and I look forward to continuing to teach and help others learn the art."

2nd Degree
Mr.Tyler Delano-Johnson
"I started doing Taekwondo back in February 2011. I was looking for a self-defense class, and I had two co-workers who were already in Mrs. Shafer's class in Seaside. It has been one of the best classes I've ever taken! Mrs. Shafer and my fellow students have helped me learn more than I ever thought I would. Recently, I have started teaching classes in Nehalem at the North County Recreation District. It is a great honor and privilege to get the opportunity to pass on what I have learned to the next generation of students!"

1st Degree
Mr. Andrew Lee
"I have been taking Taekwon-Do for 5 years. I swim for Portland Aquatic Club 5 days a week and have been playing piano for 7 years. I find a way to balance all my activities in and out of school while keeping up my grades. Taekwon-Do has taught me to persevere and to not give up. It has also taught me to show courtesy to those who are above in authority and to have self control in and outside of class. Taekwon-Do places emphasis on respect for others, and I use it every day. Id like to thank my instructors Masters Brown for teaching me Taekwon-Do as well as how to become a better person. Id also like to thank my mom and dad for taking me to classes and always being there for me. Lastly I would like to thank other teachers and students who have helped me along the way. "

1st Degree
Mr. Oliver Flood
"I started TaeKwon-Do when I was only 10, and now I'm halfway to 15 years old! I'm a freshman at Wilson High School and am in the Robotics and Model United Nations clubs there. I have been using my TaeKwon-Do discipline and perseverance to maintain a 4.0 GPA and I hope to continue this all throughout high school. I would really like to thank my supportive teachers, Masters Brown, for helping me to go this far and teaching me my most important life skills. I'd also like to thank my family for taking me to class, and my mom and sister for going with me. Thank you! "
