What led you to NSMA?

In 2007 my family moved to San Antonio and began to look for a new DoJang to attend.  We were trying to find one that had a strong focus on family, discipline, and confidence building. After many schools we found what we were looking for at NSMA.

Do you have a favorite quote from a Martial Artist?

I have two, both from Bruce Lee:

  • “Defeat is a state of mind; no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted  as a reality.”
  •  “I  fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man  who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

What are your favorite books?

First, the Bible and second Sung Su, The Art of War
