Personal Services: Martial arts studio

  • According to Sun Soo’s website, Tae Kwon Do means “the art of kicking and punching.” Founded and directed by Master Tony Morris, fellow instructors Michael Dickinson, Amy Dexter and Elizabeth Goyer guide practitioners of all ages in their pursuit of the five principles of the discipline: loyalty, filial duty, trustworthiness, valor and justice. Dozens of video and written testimonials on the Sun Soo website speak to the center’s creative and fulfilling approach. “It’s a family affair with heart in all the best ways,” says one. “I’ve got to say, and I know I may sound corny, but what I do here has made my spirit indomitable.” — J.B.
