I have been practicing at Asheville Sun Soo for a year. My two youngest children invited me after they were about 6 months in. Now my oldest has started! So far I have found my practice to benefit my overall life. I’m more physically engaged and in touch with my body than I’ve felt in 20 years. I find my practice and Sun Soo to be a grounding place in my life, helping me be more focused and productive, more intentional, patient and tolerant, and more disciplined and dedicated. Sun Soo offers us a well-organized curriculum that sets us up for success with clear and attainable goals, a supportive community of peers working together toward skills mastery that earns a new belt rank. And then the process resets. There is an infinite cycle of humility, growth, and mastery. I’m seeing my children take great pride in their achievements and I see the values practiced on the mat transferring to their lives at home - they are more respectful, courteous, and confident. When they are out of line, we often bring them back to center with a remind to live their lives the TKD way! Many thanks to our excellent Sun Soo instructors, dedicated staff, and incredible group of peer practitioners.

My husband bought me the “Mother’s Day Special” at Sun Soo nearly two years ago - to say I was hesitant to start a martial arts practice as a 40 year old woman is a complete and utter understatement! In my almost two years of practice I have become a different person- a woman of confidence and strength that I didn’t know was possible for me. I am SO grateful to the staff and my fellow practitioners. Sun Soo is so much more than a place to learn martial arts- it’s a place to learn to be the very best version of yourself in every area of your life. If you’re at all on the fence about joining - just do it.
