Black Belt of the Month - Ian Moore

Black Belts of the Month are chosen to spotlight our young leaders at World Martial Arts. We are proud to have such a diverse and talented group of people on the mats! If you’d like to nominate someone, please message us at


IAN MOORE is our black belt of the month for April 2024!

Ian began his Taekwondo journey at World Martial Arts in 2015. He earned his black belt in the summer of 2019 and also joined the Leadership Team that year. He currently is a second degree black belt, which he earned in 2022. He leads the All Belt class regularly and works well with all levels of students. He earned the Best Effort award at the annual awards ceremony in 2017 and Best of the Best Summer Camp award in 2019 as a proud member of the Dragon team. This year, however, he will no longer be a camper and we look forward to him being a counselor for Summer Camp!

Have you trained anywhere else other than WMA?

I did once for my friend's birthday. It was in Washington, D.C. and I only did one lesson.

Have you taken other martial arts?


What is your favorite TKD kick or form?

My favorite form is number 6 [Taegeuk Yuk Jang]. My favorite kick is spinning back kick. How has Taekwondo changed your life?

It has allowed me to meet new friends and has made me more active.

Do you have any hobbies?


What are your aspirations for the future?

Stay in school, get pretty good grades, get a cool job.
