In Step With. . .Mr. David Kim


Mr. Kim has been doing Tae Kwon Do for over a decade; the last 6-7 years have been as an instructor. His desire to get involved with martial arts, and wanting to be more involved with his heritage, led him to Tae Kwon Do. It has helped build him up mentally, and physically. “It is one of the best exercises for me, because it does everything from cardio to building muscles,” he states.
