Tang Soo Do requires practitioners to give 100% of what they have, physically, and mentally. Nature reflects your efforts; what you put into something, you receive. William Nguyen digs deep every class to give his all and his investments show. From his first early months training, his focus was irrefutable, by his solid daily training and studying outside of class. He’ll go far, knowing success in any direction he sets his mind on, with the discipline and attitude he exercises.
William’s an active member of the World Tang Soo Do Association community, participating in tournaments and dojang events from day one of training. His warm personality and great sense of humor help everyone feel comfortable around him. Its easy to see he demands the most from his body, while patiently working with those who aren’t as far along some paths as he is. In moments of risen difficulty, he seeks balance with a calm mind looking at the circumstance objectively, to rise above the situation, so he can dive in deep and give it his all.
