Elizabeth Winn "Miss Evie" Head Instructor

Elizabeth, senior 3rd degree black belt, has been training in Taekwondo for over 20 years. Having graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in business marketing, a goal of hers was to open her own school. While Miss Evie loves the business side of things, her real passion and biggest talents are in her teaching. She believes in teaching with compassion and genuine care to gain her students trust. From there, they are much more likely to respond and become the leaders Taekwondo creates. Elizabeth has created an effective instructor training program that is used daily in each class. Having struggled with her own battles with anxiety and eating disorders, she is able to help both children and adults see the value in themselves and help them feel proud and accomplished.
