BuSabum Nim Henry has had a lifelong fascination with the martial arts and with the cultures which spawned them. He started off as a wrestler in his youth and then moved to Eastern martial arts in 1999. He earned a 1st Dan in Tae Kwon Do the day before he graduated college with a B.A. with a double major in Religion and Christian Education (specialized in youth ministry). He knew that a 1st Degree Black Belt was only the beginning and that he wanted to eventually teach. He continued to learn, train, and help teach until he opened his own school in 2005. His personal martial arts goals are to learn as much as he can so that he can help continue the legacy of martial arts excellence. He hopes that each and every one of his students becomes an excellent martial artist and an even better person. When he is not teaching or training, he enjoys spending time with his wife and step-daughter, reading, playing video games, watching old sci-fi movies/shows, and contrasting the ethics, philosophies, and lifestyles of ancient warrior cultures with those of modern culture. Mr. Henry is also a substitute teacher for Berkeley County schools.
