Kyo Sa Nim Baoding Fan, Certified Instructor
Mrs. Baoding Fan initially began her martial arts training in 2011 with her son and daughter. (They started in Taekwondo before transitioning to Tang Soo Do.) At first, her primary purpose for training was not to earn a Black Belt, but to get regular exercise and share a fun family activity. However, the practice of Tang Soo Do would come to become a vital part of her life, and in 2016, she was proud to test for Black Belt alongside her children. Currently a second-degree Black Belt with the International Tang Soo Do Federation, Mrs. Fan has also held rank in the World Tang Soo Do Association.
