"Instructor" is the title of the most distinguished position held in all martial arts.

An instructor is one who devotes his or her timeless effort in passing on the knowledge, skills, and moral values necessary for our future generations to prosper, guiding their students through the development of specific physical and mental skills needed to keep the tradition of the art, for without good teachers; there can be no future for the art.

The Certified Instructor Training (CIT) program can be very challenging. These challenges will provide real meaning for you, now that you will begin to study teaching and studio management methods, designed to develop a new skill, the skills of becoming a professional martial arts instructor. You will also be introduced to high-end peak performance and personal development training programmes.

The Asia Pacific Tang Soo Do Federation maintains high standards, which are necessary to improve the strength and unity of our organization. During your training you may not understand many of the reasons behind the methods you use. If you have questions, first consult with your own instructor. Ultimately, please know that I take your training personally and I am available and willing to your answer questions if it will help you succeed.
