Mentored by a Korean Taekwondo Master. Julius migrated from the Philippines to Canada in 1975. He is proudly married to Teresa and has 4 wonderful kids (Julian, Amanda, Yasmin & Brooke).

Elite TKD martial arts was founded in 2006 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada at the east Elmwood area. Over the years we ventured out to the west end part of the city and discovered Issac Brock Community Center, that welcomed us in the area. My love for taekwondo and my passion for teaching has made this club orginazation a caring, giving and famliy oriented atmoshpere. One thing that sets us apart from our competitors is the love and support of our members. Everyone treats each other with respect and honesty.
A few quotes that give my life meaning:
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ, who strenghtens me"
2nd Corinthians 5:7 " Walk by faith and not by sight"
As an instructor I am doing my best to attain to be a postive role model and you as a student of Taekwondo have begun to take this path of peace, and fulfillment.
“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”
“To live a creative life, we must lose
our fear of being wrong.”
“If you can't explain it simply,
you don't understand it well enough.”
