NAME: Pete Taylor

POSITION: Regional Instructor

Shim Jang Taekwondo Regional Instructors have many years of experience; WSTA Regional Instructors have, through hard work and perseverance, “stepped up” to another level of responsibility within the WSTA organisation and by virtue of their position WSTA Regional Instructors are required to be more heavily focussed and involved with the growth and development of the organisation.

WSTA Regional Instructors don’t just teach and promote their local centre, they work closely with their local Master Instructors to provide their Regional centres with sound advice and strong support as required, Regional Instructors are constantly promoting the art by way of regular demonstrations, displays and other promotional initiatives.


Peter has been involved in Taekwondo for the past 29 years, he commenced training in 1988, achieving his 1st Dan Black Belt in 1991 as a 15 year old.
