About Koguryo Martial Arts Academy
Meet Jared Circle
My name is Jared Circle and I am the head instructor of Koguryo Martial Arts in Westerville and Sunbury. I hold a 5th Dan in Koguryo Tang Soo Do, a 4th Dan in Hap Ki Do, and a 3rd Dan in Soo Ho Ji Moo Yong Soo Ji Do.
My martial arts career began in college, and I have trained throughout my adult life in various systems, predominantly Korean. I am an active practitioner as well as instructor and enjoy training daily in the development of the systems I teach.
Traditional martial arts and its emphasis on respect and strength of character are central components in its capacity to bring empowerment to the lives of those who pursue it with dedication. My philosophy as a teacher and student is to strive to grow through martial arts as a template for life, and it is my goal to empower those who enter into one of my schools with the ability to be self-actualized individuals capable of overcoming any issue that life presents.
