What Other Members Are Saying:

I thank God for Chief Master Minton. I began my training under him as a colored belt–in fact, I transferred to Indiana State University specifically so I could work with him while I was in school. I earned my 1st Degree Black Belt under him back in 1986, and have continued training with him through my current rank of 7th Degree Black Belt. I went through Leadership Training, Instructor Certification, became a school owner, and am now a candidate for the Sr. master class of 2020, all because of Chief Master Minton’s help and leadership. His personal example of perseverance and dedication has inspired me to learn how to lead others, and his help and leadership is responsible for much of the success I’ve had with Tom’s Fitness & Black Belt Academy and the new music ministry that God’s given me!

Master Tom Dolan

7th Degree Black Belt, ATA

  I would like to express my appreciation to you and your staff for the help you have given me in achieving my goal of losing 100 pounds over the last two years. Your dedication to providing an attractive setting and professional staff for learning the art of Songham Taekwondo, gave me the motivation I needed to complete my 2nd Degree Black Belt while adding the nutritional discipline necessary for my successful weight loss. I continue to maintain my weight at my doctors’ goal for me thanks to the exercise at your facility and proper diet.
