Master Stephen Miller

Master Stephen Miller is a 6th Degree Black Belt with the USNTF and a 5th Degree Black Belt with the Kukkiwon in the art of Taekwondo.  He has been training for over 36 years.

Master Miller attained his 1st and 2nd degree black belt under Grandmaster Dae Kyu Lee, his 3rd degree under Master Luong Pham, ( a member of the 1988 Olympic Team), and his 4th, 5th, and 6th degree under Grandmaster Duk Gun Kwon.  He became a Certified Master Instructor in 2012.

Master Miller has competed throughout his life at many levels of competition, winning the NJ state tournaments on multiple occasions.  His most recent accomplishment was becoming an International Champion at the age of 45 when he won the 18th USNTF International Taekwondo Championships.

Master Miller has traveled to South Korea on 3 separate occasions, (1988, 2008, and 2019), to receive specialized training at the Kukkiwon and Taekwondowon in Seoul, South Korea.

He also has trained in Hapkido, (discipline of throws, takedowns, and joint locks), and in Koryo Gumdo, (the Korean sword, similar to that of the Samurai.

He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors Degree in Business and Finance from college.  He is a district manager of a local dental DSO and also works at the district office of H&R Block.  Further, he is an Associate Member of the Cape Atlantic Marine Corps and an active member of his church family.  Master Miller has and continues to use Tae Kwon Do to balance his work, home and family responsibilities.  His current level of mastery makes him uniquely qualified to help students understand the importance of discipline, commitment, goal setting and the value of education.

History of Taekwondo

Taekwondo, which means the “way of kicking and punching” finds its roots beginning more than 2,000 years ago.  It began as a style known as “Subak” or “Taekyon” and was developed as a way of training the mind and body in the ancient kingdom of Koguryo, under the name of “Sunbae.”  Paintings of unarmed men using very similar techniques to those of modern day Taekwondo have been found on the ceilings of royal tombs.  It was the bacbone of the Hwarangdo during the Silla Dynasty and was aimed at producing leadars of the countries.

Because of Korea’s location, Taekwondo has adapted many similarities of Karate and Kung Fu from its nearby countries of Japan and China including linear movements and circular patterns.  Taekwondao seeks coordinated growth and improvements of life through its many different activities.

Training was originally intended only for the royal families and military.  However, during the Yi  Dynasty, (1397-1907), teaching to the general public began and the focus changed to more of a recreational and physical fitness style of the art.

The first school was started in Yong Chun, Seoul, South Korea in 1945.  However, there were many different schools opening with different styles at the same time that all claimed to be of “Korean Tradition.”  It wasn’t until 1957 that general Hong Hi Choi, (known as the father of Taekwondo) suggested that the name Taekwondo be the nationally accepted name of the art.  On September 14, 1961 an offical decree was finally made to call it Taekwondo and the formed the Korea Taekwondo (KTA) with the general being elected as the first president.

A short time later, the art made its way to the USA and the US Taekwondo Association was formed in 1967, which was then replaced 7 years later by The US Taekwondo Federation.

In 1988 it was a demonstration event in the Olympics and became an official medal sport in 2000 for the Sydney games.   It is estimated that 80 million people, spanning 210 countries currently train in the art.
