ABOUT WILLIAM GILMER

The Tae Kwon Do classes are taught by lead instructor and owner William Gilmer. Mr. Gilmer holds a 2nd Degree Black Belt for over 25 years and has consistently fought in numerous competitions most of his career. Mr. Gilmer began his martial arts career at the age of 13 years old and is well versed in Tae Kwon Do, Tai Chi, Police Baton training, and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). He is passionate about competition martial arts and teaching. Continuous improvement in mind, body and spirit is the principal goal that Mr. Gilmer seeks for himself and his students.


Mr. Gilmer does not accept the words; “I CAN’T.” Failure is just success delayed. Success or victory is not measured in terms of other-people’s expectations, but in terms of the individual’s refusal to give up, to give in or to give out! For if one refuses to quit……success is always a possibility. Your child will receive training from a competent and dedicated instructor. This training will include the physical and the mental, as well as the spiritual aspects of martial arts and biblical principles. They will not be taught to fight simply for the sake of fighting, but most importantly to show them that the skills that they quickly master, are learned to show them the importance in seeking peaceful resolutions to violent confrontations. To understand that responsibility go hand in hand with the skills they learn.
