Our instructors pride themselves on holding true to tradition and attention to detail when it comes to proper technique. We believe that ethics play a crucial role in teaching the martial arts and have never compromised our standards in order to increase student enrollment, which can dilute the effectiveness of the program.

Dennis J. Angle | Chief Instructor

Background
A student of David K. Chung for nearly 30 years and one Mr. Chung’s first black Belts, Mr. Angle is currently the Deputy Chief of Police for the Waukesha Police Department and attributes his personal success to the influence Mr. Chung has had on his life. “I never would have had the confidence and skill to be a police officer without Mr. Chung in my life.” Mr. Angle’s experience as a Patrol Officer, Defensive Tactics Instructor, and member of his agency’s Tactical Unit has given him the opportunity to share with the students the practical application of the art of TKD. He has won over 11 grand championship trophies and was the All-Midwest TKD Grand Champion five times. He has said that his individual accomplishments pale in comparison to his success as a coach.

Teaching Philosophy
Prior to entering law enforcement he was a student intern assisting children with learning disabilities in his local public elementary school. Mr. Angle and Master Chung have trained numerous students with a variety of physical disabilities and cognitive impairments. Since the early 90’s they have been taking referrals from child psychologists and special education teachers seeking alternative ways to assist struggling kids. They have touched the lives of children with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Oppositional Deviant Disorder, and other learning disabilities. Their TKD teaching methods have been very successful in finding the inner martial artist in these kids. One of Mr. Angle’s personal teaching philosophies is that “Every child’s unique learning style is like a puzzle and I want to solve it.”

Associate Instructor

Ryan Anderson | Associate Instructor

Background
Ryan Anderson has been with Master David Chung for over 13 years. Mr. Anderson is an Automotive Restoration Specialist for Street Works Hot Rods in Waukesha. He derives his work ethic and perfectionist attitude from the discipline that Master Chung instilled in him from a very young age. A quote that Mr. Anderson lives by comes from our beloved Vince Lombardi, “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” Due to this attitude; he has won six Grand Champion trophies, a silver medal in the 2009 AAU National Championship, and a gold medal in the 2010 AAU National Championship.

Teaching Philosophy
One word that would perfectly describe Mr. Anderson in class is energetic. He comes out of the locker room everyday ready and roaring to teach. He in turn uses this enthusiasm to drive the students to practice to their full potential. Another notable quality that Mr. Anderson has is his refusal to allow students to quit on themselves. With this attitude, he tries to bring out every students’ inner martial artist. Lastly, He drives every student to not to be better than their peers, but to be better than who they were yesterday.

BRIAN OLSON
Associate Instructor

Brian Olson | Associate Instructor

Background
Mr. Olson first came to Chung’s Black Belt Academy ten years ago in desperate need of confidence and discipline.   His low self-esteem was rooted primarily in a bullying situation that he faced daily at his elementary school.   After he started to train at Chung’s Black Belt Academy he quickly was able to gain the self-confidence to handle his bullying problem.  Within a matter of months he gained abilities that he could never have attained by himself. He has said that he owes all of this grow to the focus and pride his instructors took in his development as a young martial artist.  Mr. Olson has said this about his instructors “By their example, I have learned the value behind perseverance, enabling me to achieve the rank of Second Degree Black Belt.”

Teaching Philosophy
Here are a few quotes form Mr. Olson on his perspective as both student and instructor.  “While I consider my Black Belt one of my foremost accomplishments, Chung’s has shown me the rewards of discipline in all areas of life; athletics, the arts, education, home, etc. If I can get one thing through to my students, it is that Tae Kwon Do is not a sport, not even a tool to be used, but a way of life. Yes, athletics is certainly a part of our program, but I would argue that the skills in self-confidence and self-discipline we endow our students with far supersede physical ability. For this reason, I will rarely critique the physical aptitude of a student, but what I am more concerned about is their mental posture and attitude.”

Mr. Olson believes that the Chung’s BBA program will test ALL areas of an individual, helping to shape them into the person they are meant to be.
