Master Terrence Fernandez is the Founder and Master Instructor of Martial Arts Spirit. Introduced to the sport of Taekwondo at the young age of six, Master Terrence grew a love for the sport and excelled, achieving his Black Belt at the age of ten, one of the youngest black belts.

This philosophy has still remained the same as Martial Arts Spirit has grown, with Master Terrence steering and mentoring our team.
