Master Marty Kaczmarek

[morfeo_basic 2 /] Here is a little about Master Marty Kaczmarek (Master K as known to his students and colleagues). Ever since he was a child, he was always interested in Martial Arts. He thanks both Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris for all of their movies that motivated him to start his own journey. At the age of 12, he started Taekwondo with Kim's Taekwondo in 1982. Master Kaczmarek would train 3-5 days per week and loved it. Like almost everyone who starts Martial Arts at that age, he lost focus and wanted to quit. It was his parents to whom, he says, "I owe the most, they wouldn't let me quit". Over the next decade he competed in several tournaments and holds multiple championships in Form (Hyung and Poomsae), Sparring and Board Breaking. He continued his training over the next decade with little breaks in between. Master Kaczmarek received his first degree black belt in 1985. His most recent test was with USA Taekwondo and holds a 6th Dan he received in 2012. He holds rank at the Kukkiwon, 2 different ITF Organizations, USA Taekwondo and still, currently trains and instructs. Master Kaczmarek lives in the small town of Sisters in Central Oregon with his wife, Jaymie and his 3 boys, Tristan, Tanner and Tate. His wife and 3 boys are also Martial Artists. Sisters is a small cowboy themed town in Central Oregon, its best known for their Outlaw Mascot. There, he owns and operates Outlaw Martial Arts. Master Kaczmarek has trained several Martial Arts over the years and has spent most of his time training Taekwondo and Muay Thai Kickboxing. Master K has a few Instructors currently, but says that he has a teacher almost everywhere he goes. He believes he is a student of every moment he is in. Coach Maves is someone he always looks to in training Taekwondo now. He also trains Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Sensei Roy Dean and hopes one day to earn his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well. He says that's his goal over the next decade.
