About Mr. David Rogers

David Rogers is President of Taekwondo America and Chief Instructor of Denton Taekwondo Academy. He has been actively involved in the martial arts since he was 19 years old. He earned his First Degree Black Belt in 1980 under the American Taekwondo Association. During the next four years Mr. Rogers was among the top three competitors in Black Belt tournament competition 22 times.

In 1982, there were political differences between the ATA and a group of Instructors which would later become the United States Taekwondo Foundation. Mr. Rogers played an important role in the formation of that organization. He was their first Promotional Director, as well as Tournament Director, and held those positions before he became Head Instructor at the national headquarters in Little Rock in 1984.

In 1985, when his father passed away, Mr. Rogers relinquished his position to attend to family matters and take a sabbatical. When he returned he came back to the martial arts with resolve. He moved to Denton, Texas where he opened Denton Taekwondo Academy and formed Taekwondo America, an organization that teaches traditional Taekwondo. To date, he has trained over 500 people to the rank of black belt, both in the Little Rock, AR area and in North Texas.
