Master Christian KlackoMaster Christian Klacko launched his martial arts career in 1986 under Master Charette in Scranton, PA. In 1991, he joined the World Tang Soo Do Association under the leadership of Grandmaster Jae C. Shin where he achieved the rank of 3rd Degree Black Belt. In 2003, he received the prestigious rank of Master from Grandmaster Richard Byrne of the American Tang Soo Do Association. He currently holds the rank of 6th degree Black Belt with the Atlantic-Pacific Tang Soo Do Federation.

Master Klacko has many areas of expertise including forms, weapons and self defense. He has made a concerted effort to maintain the sharpest possible level of skill and to continually fine tune his technique by supplementing his Tang Soo Do training with expertise in other martial arts disciplines. Master Klacko is also a member of the Hapkido Sun Moo Kwan Association in which he holds the rank of 3rd degree Black Belt.

While he is proud of his technical achievements, he sees his greatest contribution as the development of his students. He believes that the accomplishments of an instructor’s students are the true measure of the merits of the instructor. He is committed to helping students develop and flourish in their own right and to share with them the philosophy of Tang Soo Do with respect to fitness, self defense and personal development.

Master Jason DuvaMaster Jason Duva, began studying Tang Soo Do in 1985 at Lawrenceville School Karate in Lawrenceville, New Jersey under the instruction of Master Jesse Dunn and Mr. Joel Greenberg. Master Duva received his black belt and began teaching as an assistant instructor in 1989. In 1992, he became a certified instructor and founded Brown Tang Soo in Providence, Rhode Island, while continuing his training with Master Steve Voelker. During summer seasons, Master Duva taught teenagers at a summer camp in Maine, and has served as a guest instructor at several schools. He currently holds the rank of 5th degree Black Belt with the Atlantic-Pacific Tang Soo Do Federation.

Throughout his teaching career, Master Duva has devoted himself to the physical, mental, and spiritual development of students. He holds a 5th degree Black Belt with the Atlantic-Pacific Tang Soo Do Federation. Master Duva is a practicing attorney, specializing in intellectual property and computer law and also serves as the Chair of the Federation’s legal committee.

Master Noelle DrewiczMaster Noelle Drewicz has been training and teaching martial arts since October 2000 when Cambridge Tang Soo Do opened its doors. Master Drewicz is a charter member of the school and the first student to reach the rank of Master (4th degree Black Belt). She is currently one of the chief instructors of the school and devotes most of her time to the physical, mental, and spiritual development of students.

Before becoming a martial artist, Master Drewicz studied and taught dance for 28 years. She believes that the two disciplines have many commonalities and that her years of study in dance gave her the perfect background to become a technically refined Tang Soo Do practitioner. She brings the rigor, precision and discipline of her dance background into her Tang Soo Do training and is known for leading some of our most advanced and most difficult warm-up classes, inspired by her years of flexibility training.

Master Drewicz has also had an impressive competitive career as a martial artist, having competed in many local and regional events over the past 15 years. She is the only student to have won the New England All Around Women’s Championship 6 years in a row. She recently retired from the competition circuit. Outside of the martial arts, Master Drewicz is a senior designer at a Boston-based architectural firm.
