Master Richards and the teaching team at Seattle Tae Kwon Do are the absolute best. When I started classes I was close to suicide. My parents just got divorced, my grades sucked, I was overweight and my self-esteem sucked. Master Richards has always been kind and encouraging to me. It is because of him and only him that I did not end my life. Now I feel great about myself, I have all A's and B's in school, have lost 30lbs in class and have a set black belt as my goal. He is a busy man, but always cares for his students and always does his absolute best to help each student reach their personal best. I hope someday to be just like him.
