Grand Master Whitlow has spent countless years perfecting his craft while earning the prestigious rank of 9th Degree in Taekwondo, the highest rank in this art. But he has also spent many of those countless hours and years cross training in other systems. I have been training under his guidance since the late 1980's and he is not only a Skilled, technical, an innovator and talented martial artist with years of knowledge; but he is also kindhearted, charismatic, high energy, funny, compassionate, and a loving man who thrives upon perfection; while setting the leadership bar at a high level. He is well reknown around the Taekwondo community globally as an instructor, but also as an international competitor winning many medals and awards. His passion and in depth attitude towards real self-defense is why countless people around the globe want to learn personal protection; along with his attention to detail makes him one of top martial arts instructor's when it comes to training. He is the type of person you want to be around and share life's journey, a martial arts journey, because he makes you a better martial artist....but more importantly a better person.
