Master John Cassidy, Founder

Master Cassidy founded TopKick after realizing the martial arts were a perfect fit for him both personally and professionally. Master Cassidy began his martial arts career in 1988 and quickly excelled in grasping the physical aspects. Perhaps most importantly, the spirit of continual improvement that was a part of his training really made an impact. That spirit continues today in every TopKick school.

In 1998 Master Cassidy was among the first in the D.C. metro area to begin offering after school and summer camp programs. Today these programs work to deliver traditional Taekwondo benefits in positively unique ways.

Over the years Master Cassidy and his team have worked to create a Taekwondo based education that is truly unique in its substance and delivery.
