Master Greg Koval
Master Greg Koval has trained in martial arts since 1990 when he began training at Kim's Taekwondo with his father Bruce Koval. There he learned not only the way of martial arts, but the strong philosophy of Grandmaster Kim.
In September of 2012, Master Greg opened his own school but still regularly works under the guidance of Grand Master Rick Morad. In addition, he is a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and trains regularly at Rio Pro BJJ hoping to grow his knowledge of grappling to continue developing in his own martial arts journey.
It is the goal of Master Greg to continue to teach the proud heritage of martial arts training and philosophy that has been passed on to him.
Master Rick and Master Gina
Offering instruction in the morning classes is 7th Degree Black Belt Grand Master Rick and 5th degree black belt Master Gina. Master Rick has been training with Master Kim since 1981 and has been a mentor and teacher to Master Greg since he first began. Master Gina is one of the many great examples of martial artists that Master Greg has had the pleasure to learn from.
Bruce Koval and Gayle Mullen
In addition to instruction by Master Greg Koval, the school is pleased to be able to offer instruction from our two Sa Bum Nim, 4th degree Black Belt Gayle Mullen and 4th Degree Black Belt Bruce Koval.
Gayle Mullen started training in 1993 at CSU and is a great example of how a small person can overcome a larger opponent with ferocity and technique .
Bruce Koval is Greg Koval's father, and has been training in Taekwondo since 1983. Now through Koval Taekwondo he is showing the benefits of years of hard work and discipline. Also, at over 70 years old, he demonstrates great spirit as he spars and trains with students half his age.
