A LITTLE ABOUT US
Are you dying to know a little bit about our instructional staff? Well, here you go! Below you will see a brief bio on a few of our coaches and how they have become so awesome! Enjoy!
Sah Bum Nim (title rank of Master) Andrew Farley has been teaching Taekwondo to students of all ages for 22 years. Born in Hanford, CA. on April 30th, 1978 and later moving to Visalia, Sah Bum Nim Farley started training in Taekwondo with Grand Master Tong Su Yu in 1991.
This is where Andrew Farley learned the values of Discipline, self-respect, 100% effort, honesty and setting goals through the teachings of Grand Master Tong Su Yu.
His passion for training and competing in taekwondo led to the opportunity of becoming an instructor a long side his teacher.
In 1997, Grand Master Tong Su Yu passed away of cancer leaving his school to 4 of his black belt instructors. Andrew Farley, the youngest at the time, at the loss of his mentor quickly began to learn all aspects of running a school.
In June 2001, Andrew Farley ventured out to open his own dojang (school) Farley’s Martial Arts where, to this day with his family, he still teaches students as young as 4 and up instilling in them the values of which his teacher has taught him.
Farley’s Martial Arts is the longest running taekwondo program in Tulare County with a student number of over 150 students for a reason. Classes are growing each and every day with students who continue their training because they receive a value far beyond their self-defense training skills.
This is not your average martial arts school. The main focus is for the growing success of Farley’s Martial Arts members. To be more than just a champion of sport but to become a Champion of Life. You will not find a program that matches the development of character, mentor and leadership programs that are instilled into our classes each and every day.
Master Farley and his family have taught thousands of students and will continue to teach a thousand more while serving the community of Visalia. “Together we will create the next level of today and tomorrow’s leaders through our age specific training system that enhances the lives of our students ages 4 and up. Not just in their martial arts – At school, home and Life.” – Master Andrew Farley
