Junior Grand Master Mark D Good
The Good Institute is a branch of Tae Park Tae Kwon Do. Tae Park Tae Kwon Do was started by Grand Master Tae Zee Park in 1974 in Jackson, Michigan. Grand Master Park (9th Dan) is a well known TKD Grand Master with over 50 years as a Black Belt, Korean Champion 1963-1968, Instructor National Teacher's College, Vice-President Chung Do Kwan Alumni in the USA. He is a direct student of Grand Master Woon Kyu Uhm.
Junior Grand Master Good started in December of 1974 under Grand Master Park. In 1977 JGM Good, founder/president of Good Institute, moved to Grand Rapids, MI from his hometown of Jackson, MI. JGM Good (7th Dan) started teaching in April that year and has been either teaching or advising instructors, students, and classes since then. Now with 20 locations under him, 350+ Black Belts and fourteen (14) 4th - 6th Dans under him he has made some success.
Students under him have competed in Korea, Spain, Viet Nam, China, Peru, Brazil and Australia plus in the USA from the East Coast to the West Coast. Earning Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals.
Good Institute teaches Traditional Tae Kwon Do just as JGM Good was taught by Grand Master Park as he was taught by Grand Master Uhm. The philosophy behind our school is that one earns their Black Belt. Earned with hard sweat, lots of effort, time in class, and following their instructor. We do not play TKD but do TKD. Black Belts are not created the same. Good Institute tends to hold their Black Belts to a higher. When doing TKD either it is right or it is wrong.
Our Black Belts are Kukkiwon registered.
Students interested in checking out our school are welcome to try it for 2 weeks.
