Sa Bom Nim Henry Pugh Henry Pugh was born in Plant City, Florida, but he got to Texas as soon as he could.  He graduated High School in Michigan, got married, joined the Army, and when he was stationed at Ft. Hood in 1991, he decided to stay.  He has lived in Belton since then and does not plan to leave. Henry Pugh has been studying Tang Soo do since November 1996.  He knew from the start that this was the right Martial Art for him and that one day, he wanted to teach Tang Soo Do and share it with as many people as possible.  Upon receiving his Cho Dan (1st Degree Black Belt), he began teaching for his instructor in the US Tang Soo Do Alliance.  Shortly after being awarded his Ee Dan (2nd Degree Black Belt) and Kyo Sa (Certified Instructor), Mr. Pugh left his job in Corporate America and opened Belton Martial Arts Academy.  In May 2010, Mr. Pugh successfully completed testing and was awarded the rank of Sahm Dan (3rd Degree Black Belt) Henry now trains directly under Kwan Jang Nim Marco DiScipio, Grandmaster of the American Tang Soo Do Association.  He has been invited to test for Sa Dan (4th Degree Black Belt) and Sa Bom Nim (Master Instructor) in September 2015, a goal that he has been training for nearly 19 years.  In March 2016, at the annual ATA National Tournament, he received his official Sa Bom Nim Certification and his Masters Belt. © Belton Martial Arts Academy 2016 Made with MAGIX
