George Boley Jr. is a 6th Degree Black Belt. He is also a member of USITF/ITF, PPCT, ICHF, AFI, and WHA. He is our lead instructor here at The Gateway Family YMCA.

Tae Kwon Do is the essential discipline of the mind, body, and spirit. Within each class, students learn the skills of self-defense by managing six tenets: Power, Speed, Focus, Balance, Relaxation, and Control. Throughout their time within the program students practice and work to achieve belt levels by embracing new skills and enhancing those previously learned. Each level consists of the powers of concentration, self-discipline, and timing. Students will become sharper and highly developed as coordination improves.
