Rank: Yi Dan, 2nd degree black belt
I started teaching at the rank of Cho Dan, 1st degree black belt. What is great about being an instructor at P.S. Academy is when you see that a child (or adult) have that a-ha moment. When the belief in their ability to do something changes. You can see that their training is getting better and it affects the way they feel about themselves. When a student goes from 'this is hard' to 'I can do it', you know that a difference has been made in their lives. The classes give me so much energy and I have learned leadership qualities that I can take to the workplace. My children take classes here as well and my daughter has also achieved her black belt!
