My son's tae kwon do master was just arrested this past Wednesday night for allegedly soliciting murder. How do you explain that to a ten year old who was taught by this person twice a week for three years within tae kwon do to honor and respect people? We've told him the basics and that he won't be returning to the school, we aren't even sure at this point if it will ever re-open, and that we do not want him being taught by someone like this. Sounds trite to say that, "He seemed like a nice guy. He didn't seem like someone who would do something like that." We knew something about problems with his ex, but because of his reputation in the community, never would've expected this.
(Side note: When I drove past the school this past Saturday, it was still open. I don't know who is teaching, but we won't be back. We don't need to be financing this individual. It sure would be nice to get a letter or some communication from someone at the school; but he was almost a one man show, so I don't expect that will happen. It may or may not change things, but it would be a step in a positive direction. Our son attended there twice a week for three years! I know, I know, innocent until proven guilty, but if it walks like a duck...)
