Master Jorge Silva

Most classes are taught by studio's proprietor and Master instructor, D. Jorge Silva. Master Silva is a 5th degree World Tae Kwon Do Federation (Headquarters for Tae Kwon Do in Kukkiwon, Korea) certified black belt , and has been practicing martial arts since May 2nd of 1987. He is eager to share what he has gained with his students of all ages. " I ate and slept Tae Kwon Do. I learned self-control, patience, respect for others, courtesy --that you treat others the way you want to be treated. And I learned how to keep a positive attitude--not to give up in life--that there's nothing you can't do. Training in the martial arts has helped me with self respect, respect for my family and self control through my life to stay drug and gang free. It also has taught me the importance of being a role model for our kids by staying fit and healthy. I feel It is my obligation as a martial arts Master to help our kids understand and practice the importance of staying fit and eating healthy".  Master Silva was recently (10/14/06) recognized by W.T.F. and Kukkiwon president Woo Kyu Uhm with a Diploma for his unlimited efforts of self sacrifice to bring about the development and popularization of Tae Kwon Do, as a result a great contribution to the promotion on Tae Kwon Do culture.
