I first began my taekwondo training in 1997 at the age of 15. My affinity to teach quickly became apparent and I started assisting with instructing. This gave me the opportunity to develop leadership skills and realize I want to spend the rest of my life touching lives through martial arts.
I have been given an invitation to take over an existing martial arts studio in Sandy Utah however, in order for me to make this work, I need some financial support.
I have already begun working with a mentor. He's successful in his multiple school ownership and will assist me in building this existing business into a thriving martial arts studio.
The build-out on the space isn't quite complete and it is also lacking a sign that is visible from the street.
The money raised here will go to paying first and last months' rent on the facility, a banner as a temporary sign, utilities for the first month, obtaining a business license, finishing some of the remodel, and any unexpected expenses in the beginning.
Every donation and every share on social media will assist me in being able to realize my dream! You can give any amount and the reward levels break down just how attainable this amount can be. This is time sensitive and if the goal isn't reached by January 1st, no one will be charged for what they pledge.
Thank you for your consideration and your support!
