Mr. Michael Dominach awarded his 7th Degree Black Belt at the January 2018 Nationals

Mr. Michael Dominach, owner of Dominach’s Taekwondo Academy in Independence KY, started Taekwondo in January of 1991.  He finds it almost unbelievable that this new rank marks 27 years of a martial arts journey that began when he was just nine years old and living in Dallas TX!

He’s excited to do the demo for his 7th Degree Black Belt in Columbus, OH where he lived and trained with several Ohio school owners for 14 years.  January also marks 10 years of his school being open in Independence, KY.  Additionally, he currently holds the office of President of TA, which he finds to be “just weird and exciting all at once.”

What started as an obsession with the Ninja Turtles and the Karate Kid, has turned into a hobby, passion, and career that accounts for 75% of Mr. Dominach’s life. There are so many moments and memories that he considers absolutely priceless, and amazing friendships that he finds simply hard to describe.

If Mr. Dominach isn’t using some sort of movie reference, he’s definitely using Taekwondo to talk about this crazy thing we call life.

How did he feel about the honor of doing a demo and being awarded his 7th Degree Black Belt?

“I’m not sure I will do this moment justice, but without a doubt, I’m going to try.”
