One of her goals is to educate children various life lessons through Taekwon-Do in her fun yet firm lessons.
Beside martial arts, Instructor Kwok is also an artist who started her creative life since a very young age. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Hunter College in 2010.

In a multi-cultural city like New York, Ms. Kwok would like to share the profound East Asian culture through martial arts and fine arts in deep sincerity.
