More than 20 years as a student and 15 years as an instructor, Master Bernard Posey opened PURE Taekwondo Center in 2012. He is known nationally and internationally as an elite athlete, competing on a total of 8 US national teams. As being recognized by many North Carolina Governing bodies for Taekwondo, he is known as North Carolina's most decorated Taekwondo athlete in the area to this day. Master Posey has been fortunate to travel the world as he's been able to compete for these teams and and international competitions such as Korea, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Vietnam, Toronto, Mexico, Ivory Coast, and much more! Master Posey loves to apply the life lessons that he has learned in competition into his teaching as he focuses more on the traditional side of Taekwondo. As a Greensboro native and a graduate of Northeast Guilford high school, Master Posey's passion is instilling character through the art of Taekwondo. It's really easy to see his passion for teaching through his energy and animated personality. He believes that a martial artist is not defined by kicking and punching abilities, but by character. PURE Taekwondo Center is founded upon character development and life lessons that extend far beyond the training mat.
