Meet The Instructors

Ms. Sullivan – 3rd Degree Senior Black Belt, Level 4 Instructor

Ms. Sullivan took her first Taekwondo class in March 2008, and it was love at first kick. She earned her 1st Degree Decided Black Belt in October 2010 and immediately began training for her Level 1 Instructor Certification, which she received in December 2010. Since then, she has taught 1000’s of classes, camps, clinics, and special events. She earned her Level 4 Instructor Certification and 3rd Degree Senior Black Belt in May 2017 at the Black Belt Conference in Jacksonville, Florida. Shortly after, in October 2017, she opened Plano Taekwondo America.

“For me, Taekwondo is about a lot more than kicking and punching. It’s about finding a place you belong with people who understand you. The people in this organization are my lifelong friends, family, and support system.” – Amanda Sullivan






Mr. Jackson Groves, 2nd Degree Decided Black Belt, Level 1 Instructor

Mr. Groves took his first class in 2016. Since then, he has competed in multiple Demo Team National Championships, including taking home the 1st Place Trophy at the 2019 January Nationals in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He found his passion for teaching Taekwondo when he began assisting in the Lil’ Dragons program (4-5 year olds) in 2017. When he’s not taking class, practicing with the demo team, or teaching class, he can be found practicing his percussion as part of the Killian Mustangs Drum Line.
