“When I first started Taekwondo, I didn’t know what to expect. But now I’m glad that I went and tried it out. Taekwondo taught me that it takes self-discipline and that you shouldn’t give up on your goals. My goal was to become a black belt and through hard work and being patient I have achieved this in my life. The year that I started Taekwondo, my instructor, Steve Gus told me some very important words that stayed with me through all of my training and those words were,” A black belt is a white belt that never quits.” My whole journey to earning my black belt is that I had to earn 10 different belts to become a black belt. The night of my black belt testing I was so nervous. For a second I couldn’t believe that I was there. When I was going through my testing I could see my parents and grandparents sitting in the crowd cheering me on. When the night was over I was a black belt! I was so happy. I’m so glad that everyone in my classes throughout my four years of taekwondo were nice and helpful to me. I had a blast! I would like to thank Steve Gus and all of my other instructors for helping me achieve my goal.”

“We were searching for an activity that would help build our children’s self-esteem, confidence and also provide for physical activity.  We believe we have found that with Gus’ CBBA Taekwondo. We have seen an increase in self-esteem and confidence that extends to our children’s school, church, and social activities.  The values taught in the classes carry over to everyday life.  The attention and instructions given have tremendously helped John and Roswell face and overcome personal challenges. We are extremely happy and would highly recommend Gus’ CBBA to anyone looking to boost their child’s self-esteem and confidence.”
