"I took Taekwondo under Mr. Blackman for the 2 years I lived in New Mexico. I'm currently taking Taekwondo (in my 10th year) in Arizona. I must say that Mr. Blackman is the best instructor I've ever had the opportunity to learn under. His program contains the material needed to be a great martial artist, as well as a great person outside of the training hall." -Anthony Nguyen
"While visiting family in June 1998, my daughter and I attended my nephews promotion test at Blackman TKD Academy. We were so impressed with the students and the Blackmans, we decided to try this wonderful sport. Unfortunately we could not join Blackman TKD as we live in Denver, but the Blackmans have been very supportive in our quest and have always welcomed us into their Dojang and have made us feel as though we were a part of their TKD family." -Rex Wells
"As a military family, we've been assigned to three different areas since our kids have started Tae Kwon Do. At each location we've done a lot of "shopping" for the right Do Jong and can truly state Blackman's Tae Kwon Do Academy is the absolutely the best we've ever found. They provide just the right mix of discipline, seriousness and fun in a well-run, structured environment. They don't seem to put the school's emphasis on "chasing the belts" but rather on the development of the students." -Dennis, Kim, Katie and Michael Jones
"Mr. Blackman is a great instructor, and a true friend. His instruction from when I was 9 until I left for college not only influenced my Tae Kwon Do life, but all other aspects of my life as well. Through the martial arts, I learned countless lessons, not the least of which included self dicipline, improved health, confidence, and, of course, the ability to defend myself.
In short, I would not be who I am today without the martial arts, and the martial arts would not be what they are to me without Mr. and Mrs. Blackman, and the whole TKD family." -Jonathan Millhollon
