Quotable Estuardo Teran, Jr.: "I think that God has granted me with a "special gift" in being able to teach tae kwon do to young children, such as 3-year-olds. Throughout the summer I look forward to helping my father at Victory Tae Kwon Do Academy with the new summer students. Each summer I stand proudly by my father and learn from him on a daily basis. This opportunity gives me much experience with children of all ages. Most importantly, I am learning many tools which will all be life lessons for my future. Some day, I plan to own my very own 'Victory Tae Kwon Do Academy'."
