Meet the Instructors
Eung Yeon Jon
Instructor Jon has a Black Belt in Taekwondo. He has briefly learnt Taekwondo at a very young age and stopped when he came to New Zealand. This all changed when he met his current master Jason Kim by chance.
After the initial meeting with him and sharing a pleasant conversation, he decided to come to Master Kim’s trial class. After the first day he found out just how unfit he was and how much he could learn while being part of Global Martial Arts.
After 3 years of hard training he is now an instructor for the children’s class. His objective is to teach all his students not only the physical skills of Taekwondo but also its philosophies and values. He hopes to produce the kind of students that will set good examples and become role models for future students to look up to. Naturally, he expects all of his students to behave in exactly the same way outside the Dojang (Training Facility) as they behave in the Dojang. he also hopes that his students will show higher discipline and focus wherever they go. This is because he firmly believes that being a Martial Artist is a privilege that people carry around with them at any time and therefore obliges them to act in an exemplary way.
