On November 30, 2012 Michael along with his mom and dad, came to visit the Hillsboro Unified Tae Kwon Do located at 125 W Elm-Hillsboro. After participating in a few free classes Michael decided martial arts was for him. He has competed in many tournaments and has come home with many first place trophies.
On March 5th, 2016 the big day came and Michael was eligible to test for his Black Belt in Houston, Texas. It was a rather scary day with a panel of 15 Masters and Grand Masters from all over Texas, including Master Charles Kight, chief instructor of the Hillsboro Unified Tae Kwon Do School, judging him. After performing patterns, reciting pattern meanings, breaking boards, and sparring Michael returned home with a Black Belts to show for his hard work.
Michael has decided to continue his martial arts education and is working toward his 2nd degree Black Belt. Michael is a busy young man playing football, baseball and running track but still finds time for martial arts.
