I am a special education teacher and I teach grades kindergarten through second grade. My students are challenged with behavior disorders. Therefore, my students require an environment that is safe, nurturing and structured. Earlier this year, one of my students joined Omar Welch Taekwondo class. Ever since, this student has made remarkable improvements in class. This particular student is now an active leader in our class and the most improved student this year. Taekwondo also offers an inviting and safe environment for students. In addition, it has offered the students the opportunity to enhance their self-esteem and build confidence. Mr. Omar Welch has taught my student how to develop self-discipline by thoroughly training the techniques of Taekwondo. Thanks to Omar Welch, my student continues to make successful strides academically and behaviorally.

MEET OUR INSTRUCTOR
Omar WelchHead Certified Instructor- 4th Degree Black Belt and USTF State Director
When I was 12 years old life was hard, I needed structure and guidance if I ever wanted to see adulthood. I am from Savannah, GA and that is where I took my first Taekwon-Do class and got hooked. I became a leader in my high school and made it to college at the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs). The lessons that I learned stuck with me in college. In 1996 I had a horrible auto accident and became a Brain Injury Survivor. While in the hospital I was told that I may not be able to finish college or live alone and that I may never walk again.
Six months after my accident I returned to UGA and got my bachelors degree in Economics because of the inner strength I got from Taekwon-Do. At this time my walking was not as strong as it had been and I had put on a lot of weight and lost a lot of muscle. Never did I loose spirit but getting the body to work again was a challenge. In 2009 I found Taekwon-Do again in the USTF (United States Taekwon-Do Federation); I started over as a brand new White Belt. It took some time but I got to First Degree Black Belt, so much for never walking again. I do not want to stop so I got my Second Degree Black Belt, my Third Degree Black Belt, became the USTF Georgia State Director and continue to train to this day. Now I am an expert instructor and Fourth Degree Black Belt … still kicking.
My rehabilitation benefited from what Taekwon-Do has to offer and I wanted to share those benefits. The first step was to become a Certified Taekwon-Do instructor with the USTF (United States Taekwon-Do Federation) and then I began to develop the “Special Warriors” and “Senior Warrior” Programs. The Special Warriors program is designed to teach Traditional Taekwon-Do to students with Special Needs. If the student is willing, I will teach them the art of Taekwon-Do. I have had great success teaching students in the “Main Stream” classes as well as with “Special Needs” and “Senior Warriors” classes. It is my hope that we can train together someday soon.
