    JAKE WEISS    

Striking Coach

Assistant Fight Team Coach

Coach Jake started in the International Taekwon-Do Federation ("ITF") under his father, Grand Master Earl Weiss, the last person to receive the rank of master from the founder of Taekwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi. From age 6 to 15, Coach Jake competed regularly, and he started competing nationally and internationally at age 16. He spent about 4 years competing at the international/national level. Every time he lost, he learned more about himself as a martial artist and trained harder. By age 21, those learning curves paid off. Between age 21 and 31, Coach Jake became an international and national ITF TaeKwon-Do medalist, winning both gold and silver medals:


4 X Gold Medalist 

2 X Silver Medalist 


1x Gold Medalist

1x Silver Medalist 

Team Power-Breaking 

1x Gold Medalist

Now, as a 4th Dan black belt, Coach Jake has been working on blending his style, foot work, technique, timing, and explosiveness from ITF Taekwon-Do with the mental toughness taught to him by his wrestling coaches Albandia and Hampton and the heavier emphasis of more limbs and combinations of Dutch and Thai kickboxing. Coach Jake's classes and fight style focus on dynamic combinations that blend traditional ITF TaeKwon-Do with inventive and unique striking.

  • 4th Dan Black Belt in ITF TaeKwon-Do

  • International and National ITF Medalist

I believe that practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.
