"The Spirit of the Shogun"
2003 Award for Outstanding Leadership and
Support to Region 111 ATA Schools

I received this award from Vision TKD in August 2003. Mr. Gailes deeply appreciated the time I put into the school and lobbied hard (I think) to make sure I got the outstanding contributor award that year. This statuette has been on display in my living room until now -- I relocated it to my dojang. I'm more proud of this statue than some professional awards I've received!
