She grew up in TKD attending class with her father and little sister, and almost never missed classes. She earned her 1st Dan in 2014 and a spot on the US National Team in 2016. She works daily for the dream of a Gold at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 and is passionate about training and passing on her knowledge to children.

Ms. Terry Hernandez, Membership Director

Miss Terry earned a degree in Restaurant Management and is responsible for a great number of things at KuGar, the greatest of which is the care of children in the After School Program. She manages our staff and pickups to ensure that all children make it safely from their school to our facility, complete their homework, and attend their TKD class. She is amazingly patient and hard working and a wonderful addition to our staff.
