Darryl Pearce

With over 20 years of experience in Tae Kwon Do, Darryl Pearce joined the team at Freestyle Martial Arts Academy in 2009. He began his martial arts training in Tae Kwon Do at the age of 11 in Orlando, Florida. Since then, he has moved over 15 times. Every relocation after the age of 12 forced Darryl to prove his knowledge and ability in Taekwon Do before he would be accepted as a student and his rank would be honored.

Each Tae Kwon Do Master would require him to learn their unique curriculum before advancing him any further in rank. Although this led to many additional years of practice, Darryl gained a broad understanding of both traditional and sport-oriented Tae Kwon Do styles. Darryl gained his 1st Dan rank with the World Tae Kwon Do Federation in 1999 under Master Chip Lutz at the age of 21.

Darryl teaches both traditional and sport-oriented Tae Kwon Do philosophies with strong tones of practical application. He stresses the importance of incorporating martial arts exercises and principles into daily life for a healthy body and a healthy attitude. The end result of Darryl’s teachings is a comprehensive understanding of Tae Kwon Do as an expression of one’s self and as an effective means of self-defense..
