Mr. Steve Paik Mr. Paik, 3rd Degree Black Belt, began studying Tang Soo Do in October 2000 under the instruction of Master Christian Klacko at Cambridge Tang Soo Do. In January 2005, Mr. Paik became the first student to start and receive his black belt at Cambridge Tang Soo Do. Mr. Paik continues to compete in numerous tournaments throughout the year, whenever possible. Due to his extensive business travel, Mr. Paik has worked hard to maintain his training wherever he goes. In the past, he has trained with the following people:

  • Master Karl Courage, member of the International Tang Soo Do Federation in Encinitas, CA.
  • Mr. Ishido Tadao, retired boxer in Utsunomiya, Japan.
  • Master Baek, owner of a Hapkido / Taekwondo school in Daejeon, South Korea.
  • Mestre Chuvisco, owner of Boston Capoeira in Boston, Massachusetts.
  • Master Patrick Marsch, member of the World Tang Soo Do Association in UCSD, California.
  • Mauricio, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt in Carlsbad, California.
Mr. Paik encourages his students to diversify their training regimen. By trying different things, it is possible to learn what works for a person and what does not. As an instructor, Mr. Paik focuses on building stamina and technical ability, as well as maintaining a high level of energy and spirit in his classes.

Mr. Paik believes in exploring all aspects of the human body to balance the physical aspects of studying Tang Soo Do. In particular, Mr. Paik is continually studying anatomy, physiology, nutrition, and philosophy to become more self-aware. He is currently employed as an embedded software engineer at a telecommunications company.
