Hagsaeng Naebu literally translates to “inside student,” the Korean equivalent of Japan’s well known uchi-deshi style of martial arts training. We, the authors, are privileged to be participants in a truly unique “live-in” martial arts program…the only of its kind for Taekwondo outside of Asia. There are currently four of us studying in this intense manner under the guidance of Master S. Pearson, founder and head instructor of Shin Ho Kwan (Institute of the New Tiger) Taekwondo. We’re blogging about our experience so that you can get an inside perspective on this rare, traditional style of martial arts practice. See what we go through, what we learn, and how our path unfolds... Welcome to “Gazing Through Tiger Eyes”


  1. I just love what you are doing. You are truely inspirational and motivational to the rest of us in the martial arts community. Love your focus and passion.
