Master George Ferris

Master George Ferris entered the Martial Arts world in 1971 at the New Orleans Police Academy, where he studied Judo. From 1973-1980 he studied the martial arts under a variety of masters. Then, in 1981, he began studying under Grand Master Young Seok Kim, under whom, in 1984, he earned his 1st Dan Black Belt and began teaching. In 1986, seeing need to further aid the community, he established the Kenner Recreation Martial Arts Program, which survives today.  Finally, in 1994, with the attainment of his mastery in the Korean martial arts, he formed the World Martial Arts Southeast Regional Headquarters in Kenner, LA. Today, Master George is a 6th Dan Black Belt in both Taekwondo and Hapkido. His positive and encouraging teaching style is loved by all his students!
