Sabumnim Mike Louie, V Dan was originally signed up in Taekwon-Do in 1978 at the age of 6 years old. The first school he attended was Master Bai’s in Ramsey, NJ. His 2nd instructor from 1982-1986 was Master Jay Lally in Wyckoff, NJ. He was then a volunteer instructor teaching Taekwon-Do at Millersville University from 1992 until 2002.  Since then Mr. Louie has trained under 3 different instructors.

Through Millersville University he met Mr. Mark Engle whom he trained under for a couple years. Then when Mr. Engle graduated and left the school to Mr. Louie, he started to train under Master James Murray, 8th Dan (ret. 2004) of Pottstown, PA. Master Murray trained under General Choi (founder of Taekwon-Do) and Grandmaster Kong Yong Il (9th Dan). When Master Murray retired, Mr. Louie joined up with Mr. Dan Greak, 6th Dan black belt of Winfield, PA. Together they work to keep the Taekwon-Do spirit alive with the Yom Chi Taekwon-Do Federation in which is dedicated to Master Murray and his teachings.
