Grandmaster Gustavo Pope, an eighth degree black belt and director of Xtreme Tae Kwon Do in Wellington, joined by his students, recently hosted a very special guest.
Professor Pedro Florindo, a ninth degree black belt and director of the Argentina School of Tae Kwon Do (Escuela Argentina de Tae Kwon Do) visited Pope, his longtime protégé.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to have my instructor, whom I have trained under for the last 40 years, continue to pass on his knowledge to my students,” Pope said.
Florindo is world renowned and one of the highest ranking grandmasters in tae kwon do.
More than 20 black belt students at Xtreme Tae Kwon Do were thrilled to attend a special class taught by Florindo. His knowledge of kinesiology, self-defense and the health of mind and body is unsurpassed.
“I look up to him as a father figure, friend and mentor, and I am committed to continuing this great legacy in the martial arts,” Pope said.
Xtreme Tae Kwon Do is located inside Ultima Fitness (12799 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington). For more info., call (561) 795-2823.
