Instructors and Black Belts

Chief Instructor James (Jim) Hewes, A-4-339

Jim has been studing martial arts for over 18 years. He first began his journey into the martial arts at the Delaware Institute of Martial Arts in Clayton, Delaware. His primary style has been ITF Taekwon-do and has evolved to cross train in many other avenues. Jim currently holds his 4th dan in Taekwon-do and trains under Grand Master Hwang in Hartford, CT. The other styles Jim has trained in include, but are not limited to, judo, sambo, Philipino and Korean stick fighting, and boxing. Jim has been an assistant instructor at several former schools prior to their disemblance. The current opportunity to run his own school has allowed him to bring about new concepts and ideas into teaching the martial arts. Also it allows him to give back to the community in which he was born and raised in and is thankful for the opportunity.
