My story begins in 1972, at the age of 12 struggling with anger issues that I didn't know how to control, feelings of explosive anger hitting walls and breaking doors. At the same time my brother Bobby was constantly being bullied at school.
My mom, Marilyn Killebrew contacted a man named Master Jung Ba Lee and asked him if Karate could teach her boys to control their tempers. I argued with my mom as I had no interest in learning Karate, but she insisted and gave me 2 choices. Either be grounded for 2 months or take Karate lessons. It was shortly thereafter I began to learn Sim Moo Hapkido and the direction of my life changed forever.
