Founder and Head Master Instructor Grandmaster Tony Morris recently paid a visit to local elementary school, Leicester Elementary. He taught students some of the basics of self-defense and the tenets of Tae Kwon Do, while conducting a class that was fun and engaging.
While engaging with these students, Grandmaster Morris was also there to support teacher Amy Vaughn, a 2nd degree Black Belt practitioner at Asheville Sun Soo, as well as a first grade teacher at Leicester Elementary.
It is always a pleasure to support our local community, and we are proud of the contributions our students regularly make to the local community. If you are interested in booking Asheville Sun Soo for a martial arts demonstration, self-defense class, or other engaging venue for your group or organization, please contact Grandmaster Tony Morris at Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts – 828-505-4309.
