"I started Kuk Sool Won at a club in the Post Oak YMCA because I wanted to have a family activity with my son. As a single mom I wanted an activity that we both could do for a long time. I had taken other martial arts growing up (Karate, Judo) and was always interested in healthy activities, for the mental and physical challenge. I also liked the culture.
I grew up traveling with my Dad's work in the petroleum industry. By the time I was 19 I had been around the world twice.
I consider myself a world citizen and will be glad when we finally get around to issuing I.D.'s to that effect. I love all cultures and have found very few that do not contribute positively to our global energy.
I am extremely grateful that I have met Masters Harmon and feel if I can do half of what they have accomplished I will have done good."
