Grandmaster Darryl Khalid

Grandmaster Darryl D. Khalid, 8th Dan, began his martial arts training in Korea in 1970 while stationed at Osan Air Force Base. His instructor was Master Chun Sik Kim.

Grandmaster Khalid has served as the Defense Tactical Coordinator for Glendale Community College Police Reserve Academy which serves the west side of Maricopa County in the State of Arizona.

In 1987, he received the Master of the Year award from the World Tang Soo Do Association (WTSDA). In 1988, Master Khalid traveled with Grand Master Jae Chul Shin to China where they placed the first non-Chinese monument at the Shaolin Temple. In 1990, he became the chairperson of the self defense committee for the WTSDA developing new techniques for instructor training.

As an ambassador of the WTSDA he was also sent to Magdan, Russia on a diplomatic tour, where he introduced Tang Soo Do to local police and schools from Kindergarten through 12th grade.

In September of 1997, he formed his own organization, the Universal Tang Soo Do Alliance and currently serves as its president. He also operates Khalid’s Martial Arts in Glendale, Arizona.

In 2000, Grandmaster Khalid was inducted into the World Black Belt Hall or Fame.

WOW, so much has changed since you were my trainer in 1980! Still remember my police academy training with you, and happy to see how far you’ve come in your profession. 😉 Best wishes, Suzanne
