Master Tim Rupert

Master Rupert is a 5th Degree Black Belt and internationally certified Master instructor.  He began training in Tang Soo Do on January 29, 2001.  He achieved the rank of Cho Dan (first degree midnight blue belt-the equivalent of a black belt in other styles) on April 3, 2004.  He has trained diligently and continuously for over 21 years, and began teaching professionally in 2010, discovered sharing martial arts as his true passion in life.

In March of 2011, Master Rupert became a student of Master Frank Schermerhorn (Dan # 19787) of the Winding River Karate Studio, and a member of the World Moo Duk Kwan. He earned his 3rd Dan ranking in October 2011, and was awarded Dan # 43,822 by Grandmaster H.C. Hwang.

Master Rupert participated in the world-renowned, week long Kodanja (Master rank) testing held by the Moo Duk Kwan in 2015 for his 4th Dan Master rank and again in 2021 for his 5th Dan and Sa Bom, the highest level of instructor certification available in the Korean Martial Arts world.

Master Rupert continues to refine his instructional skills to provide the best experience for his students for all age levels, tailoring each program to the appropriate learning style and age range.  He is fully background checked and certified through the Protect Youth Sports organization to ensure a safe and secure atmosphere for families training with us.

In 2021, Rupert’s Karate Academy was voted the Best Martial Arts School in Naples by readers of the Naples Daily News.  In 2022, Master Rupert was appointed as a Regional Examiner, charged with overseeing student quality and Dan testing procedures.  He was also appointed as a Liaison for the World Moo Duk Kwan Heritage Program, to assist in reconnecting members to the Moo Duk Kwan that were previously unaffiliated and desired to rejoin the mother organization.

“I am proof that if you set your sights on a goal never stop pushing yourself, regardless of the bumps along the way, you WILL surpass your expectations.  I have always struggled with weight and body image and was picked on as a child.  Soo Bahk Do gave me the confidence I needed to rise above negativity and know myself to be a strong, disciplined, powerful person.”
