Dragon Heart Tang Soo Do was started in Garberville, CA in 1998 by Master Becky Wolverton (Rupp), then a 1st degree black belt with the World Tang Soo Do Association. Master Wolverton has since dedicated her life to teaching Tang Soo Do, women’s self-defense, and Haidong Gumdo, and is a 5th Degree Master Instructor and Regional Director of the World Tang Soo Do Assocation Region 1.

She started Dragon Heart 2 in Arcata, CA in May of 2015 and turned that school over to Mr. Robert Gross, Sah Dan (4th degree), as the Chief Instructor in April 2017. Both schools will remain as part of the same family and under Master Wolverton’s guidance.
