MR. WARREN DAVIS, 8TH DEGREE BLACK BELT
MASTER LEVEL INSTRUCTOR AND PROGRAM DIRECTOR
Mr. Davis began his martial arts training as a young boy living in Birmingham, Alabama in early 1977. His parents enrolled him to help him with his self-confidence and to help him learn to defend himself. His family moved to Mobile, Alabama in 1978 and after receiving his Black belt he decided to join the instructor team. Mr. Davis continued to train and teach Taekwondo throughout the 1980s. In 1987 he took over a Taekwondo club in the Tillman’s Corner suburb of Mobile from a friend who moved to Charlotte, North Carolina and opened a Taekwondo America school. He taught there until he graduated from college in 1989. In September 1989 Mr. Davis opened Greensboro (North Carolina) Taekwondo America at a small facility on West Market Street. The small facility was quickly outgrown and they moved to a larger facility and taught there for 19 years. In January of 2010 the school was moved to it's current location on New Garden road.
At the Winston-Salem National Championships on September 24, 2011 Mr. Davis was promoted to the rank of 8th Degree Black Belt Master Instructor by the Taekwondo America Board of Examiners. Mr. Davis has taught clinics and performed demonstrations across the United States. He has also helped many students in Greensboro reach their goals in Taekwondo.
In November of 2014 Mr. and Ms. Davis sold the Greensboro location to their student of over 20 years, Mr. Chris Penn. They moved to McKinney, Texas (Ms. Davis says it is Mr. Davis' midlife crisis) and opened a new school in January of 2015!
