"Hwar Do is one of the best things that I have undertaken. I am a 61 years old physician and 3rd degree black belt. I began training about seven years ago. As I moved up through each higher colored belt, I felt my body becoming ever stronger and more flexible; and my mind becoming quieter, more focused, and more disciplined. The day that I earned my black belt was a great day!


But, it hasn't stopped there. I have been in black belt training for four years, and with each lesson I find that my abilities continue to improve. Black belt training has helped me hone my skills, and further develop my physical and mental strength and endurance.


I am living proof that you are never too old to begin martial arts training, and Hwar Do is absolutely the best training available."
