- 3rd Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do
- BoDan in Hap Ki Do
Andrew Epperly has been one of Dae Han’s students for the past 16 years. Starting at age 4, he has climbed his way up through the ranks to his third degree black belt and will continue to rise through the ranks. He remembers training with Master Jacob when they were both little. Training under Master Seo, Master Mike, Master Jason, and other teachers over the years are some of his best memories. For a while, though, there was a time when he wanted to leave his training behind and do something else with his time, but through the will of his father, he kept on. After achieving his first black belt at the age of 14, he decided to stay at Dae Han and continue training, and to this day, he can’t imagine life without Dae Han and Tae Kwon Do. Since then, Andrew has taken up Hap Ki Do and Gum Do and is continuing his training.
Personally, Andrew is usually laid back and calm, but he will show passion and excitement for what he loves. He has also had a history of being quiet and reserved, but this has not stopped him from getting his point across when he needs to. Andrew believes that there is a time and a place for everything, so he is able to control himself and can be serious or playful depending on the situation.
In his free time, Andrew enjoys drawing, listening to heavy metal, or hanging out and playing a game with his friends. One of his favorite things is just sitting down with a good friend, some food, and just talking about anything that comes to mind.
