One of the most important roles within the Shim Jang Taekwondo Organisation.
Shim Jang Taekwondo Branch Instructors are indeed a “Special Breed” of martial artist, their dedication to the art and its members is first class and they relish the responsibility of operating and managing a class in accordance with the WSTA guidelines.
Our Branch Instructors have diligently worked their way to their positions by way of a unique training process that provides them with the knowledge and ability to confidently teach, manage and administer at this important level.
Once they have achieved an acceptable level of skill and served time as a Trainee Instructor our Branch Instructors are then “Hand Picked” for their position by our Founder (Grandmaster Les Hicks) and his expert team of Master and Regional Instructors.
