MASTER ERIC MADDEN
Director of Kingdom Warriors Christian Martial Arts
Master Eric Madden is the Senior Instructor and Director of Kingdom Warriors Christian Martial Arts in Alexandria, Virginia. He is a Fifth Degree Black Belt under the United States Chung Do Kwan Association. He is married with two children, and everyone in the Madden family has at least a first degree Black Belt in Taekwondo.
Master Madden has a gift for working with kids and has a genuine concern that they learn not only out on the mats, but in the classroom and at home. That's because Master Madden's other job is as the Children’s Pastor at Washington Community Church in Alexandria, Virginia. That's how Kingdom Warriors originally started, as a simple home ministry with the families in the church. The school continued to grow and Master Madden was hired to assume both roles as Children's pastor and director of Kingdom Warriors.
He is passionate about seeing the students succeed on every level. His martial arts instruction is coupled with life skills and principles that students may apply in any aspect of life. Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-control and the Indomitable Spirit are the foundational values that lessons are built upon to develop confident, self-directed learners. These just happen to be the 5 Basic Tenets of Taekwondo and the Indomitable Spirit is the one thing that everyone has that makes them unique.
To quote Senior Grandmaster Edward Sell, the late founder of the U.S Chung Do Kwan Assosiation, “A Black Belt is a White belt that never quit.” He was speaking of that Indomitable Spirit. Come join us on our journey to Black Belt and beyond. And together we will,” Never Give Up.”
Master Madden breaks eight slabs of concrete.
