Jon Goode – Cambridge / Arlington Location
Jon has been training in Oom Yung Doe for over 10 years. He is a 4th degree black belt and state level gold medalist.
“I found a school of Oom Yung Doe not far from where I was living … and enrolled. It was much greater than I could have imagined. I ran with it, practiced really hard, practiced a lot, and before I knew it I was in a completely different place. I was much more happy, much more enthusastic. My health was better than it had ever been … just like a completely different person after just a few years. I saw what it was doing for me … I built myself up to a point where I could teach. Then when I started teaching I fell in love even more. I started realizing that this was what I wanted to do. I wanted to see other people change as I’ve changed.”

“After I graduated college, I decided, the most effective way to help others was through the martial arts practice that had helped me so much. I started this practice to strengthen my will and help my growth in being a more compassionate, driven, and focused person. I wanted to do this for myself so I could better help future clients as a counselor. It turned out that becoming an instructor was really what I wanted to do and how I wanted to help heal and empower others.
