Introducing Master Brandon Bastin

Our web site blog has been rather inactive for a while now.  That’s never a good thing.

Brandon Profile

I’m very excited to announce that Master Brandon Bastin has agreed to post entries on our blog page.  I’ve known Master Bastin for many years…ever since I was a color belt.  He is an exceptional martial artist and teacher.

Master Bastin started training in Tang Soo Do in May of 1998.  He tested for Black Belt (Cho Dan) in the fall of 2000.  He promoted to Cho Dan in the Spring of 2001.  He received his instructor certification (Kyo Sa Nim) in 2002.  He tested for Sa Bom Nim (4th Dan) in the Spring of 2010.  He promoted to 4th Dan in the Fall of 2010.

Master Bastin has been married to his high school sweetheart since 1999.  They have two wonderful children.  His daughter is a 2nd Dan (2nd Degree Black Belt) and is currently an officer for her high school dance team.  His son is a Red Belt 2-Stripe and currently enjoys working on Parkour.

Master Bastin has periodically trained at Aim and Focus Karate.  Many of my Black Belts have benefited from his excellent instruction.

I look forward to reading his blog entries and sharing them with the students and parents in our school.
