Jarod started Kim Soo Karate at age 9, and steadily worked his way up the ranks, celebrating every new belt. He achieved his black belt in April of 2014 at age 14! Jarod has always enjoyed the craft, and especially loves instructing. Aside from karate, he plays varsity football for the Wimberley Texans. He is also the Chief Squire for the Wimberley St. Mary’s chapter of the Knights of Columbus Squires. His dream is to go to Texas A&M, and starting a Chayon Ryu in that area.
