  • We switched from another school recently and the difference in discipline and personal attention is extraordinary. Grand Master Bushman explains each move in order to allow the student to truly understand how and why it would be used. This is taught with the respect and skill that it should be taught by knowledgeable instructors.

  • Thanks for your kindness and skill as a teacher. The Lab Family, The Clements Family.

  • Hi Mr.Bushman,
    Thank you for being a part of ____'s team. For the past year, he has lived with us as a foster child. We are in the process of adopting him, hopefully by the end of the summer. You are part of a team of teachers and therapists who are making a difference in his life, and we very much appreciate that. Thank you for your patience with him. Developmentally he has missed much, and we are hoping that TKD will help him catch up SOME in the areas of patience, concentration, coordination, perseverance, and confidence. Please keep patiently pushing him to work. He has never been expected to do anything before he came to us, but we expect him to learn how to work to achieve.

    So again, thank you for being a part of his team. Your compassion, patience, and perseverance are making the difference in the life of a lost boy, who is on the path to his own goodness.

  • Hi Master Bushman,
    I forgot how the subject came up, but I mentioned to Grand Master Kim how good you look when you do your forms. We were discussing the demo at the tournament. He said 'there is no one who can touch you.' There was a lot of pride in his voice when he spoke. He said you have very clean forms and excellent technique. He also said that 'if these so-called Masters put themselves at your level, they are very sadly mistaken' I thought you would like to know.
