Chief Instructor

Brad Haynes began his martial arts training by watching a friend take classes for a couple of months. Brad started training in 1993 with Grand Master Middleton in New Albany, IN and instantly fell in love with martial arts.

In 1997, he received his First Degree Black Belt. Due to a job change, he was no longer able to attend classes there and decided to train at a school in Louisville, KY that was close to his new job. There he met Mr. Doug Eddins. Mr. Eddins started him at Blue Belt and, in October of 1998, Mr. Haynes received his Decided First Degree Black Belt from the United States TaeKwonDo Alliance.

In 2001, Mr. Haynes began running a second location for Mr. Eddins and, in August of 2003, Mr. Haynes, now a Sr. Third Degree Black Belt, opened his school in Clarksville, IN.

Mr. Haynes has been training in martial arts for over 20 years and continues to train today. Over the years, he added HanMuDo and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu training to his regimen.

Mr. Haynes is married and has four children - Ella, Alex, David and Katie. In his free time, he is also a volunteer police officer for the City of New Albany.
