Bill Dewart, Head Instructor at the Academy of Tae Kwon Do, has been serving the community for over 30 years and is dedicated to making Hayes Valley safer. Adults and children are welcome at the Academy.
In addition to hosting the AAU FRIENDSHIP TOURNAMENT XVII at SFSU on November 20th, the Academy is also offering new classes. After the New Year, a self defense seminar entitled “Dealing with Violent Behavior” will be offered. It will be open to the community and not exclusively to Tae Kwon Do athletes.
Bill Dewart is a big believer in the value system taught through traditional martial arts and feels that it is a very positive influence in the development of young people. He also personally and firmly believes that Taekwondo training has been responsible for saving his life. In 2001 he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and is certain that Tae Kwon Do training was instrumental in surviving his fight with cancer.
