The Founder

My name is Arnav Kumarapuram. I am currently an 9th grader studying at Ridge High School School in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. I have been learning Tae Kwon Do since I was 6 years old, and I am a 2nd Dan/Degree black belt in this martial art. I absolutely love watching Formula 1 Racing with my brother and competing in FIFA with him. I also like cooking and playing outside with my friends. Last but not least, I love going to my Tae Kwon Do classes twice every week and being an Instructor to young children. Even without knowing martial arts there are basic techniques which every child can and should learn. I want to help children learn how to relax their body and mind so that they gather the strength to fight for themselves.

Volunteer Service Award

I am proud to announce that after 1 year, by accumulating 52 hours of volunteer service, I have been awarded with The President’s Volunteer Service Award! For the past year, I have been teaching White, Yellow and Orange Belt students the basics of Tae Kwon Do. Because of this, I have been awarded with a letter straight from the White House,  signed by President Joseph R. Biden.
