  Master David Laughlin
Top Notch Founder, Tang Soo Do Instructor

Master Laughlin has spent many years searching for a career that would offer him a stable and secure foundation and still be able to challenge his creativity and enthusiasm. He found all of this and more in Martial Arts.

He received his Bachelors Degree in Business Management, Communications and Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh. He holds the rank of 4th Degree Black Belt in Tang Soo Do, 3rd Degree Black Belt in Haidong Gumdo and is a Certified Instructor. His teaching objective is to help his students achieve their goals in both Martial Arts and in life.

  Master Gene McClone

Master McClone is a living testament to the fact that there are no age barriers in the art of Tai Chi.

2013 marks 74 years of life for Gene, as well as 24+ years of training in the Martial Arts. Gene is extremely committed to help as many others as possible towards the attainment of their goals.

Gene is happily married to Mary Ann who is a wonderful wife, and who has also become his best friend. He is the proud grandfather of five great kids.

  WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY:
Coming back to the practice of Tai Chi after a year's absence following a spinal cord injury was the most important step I took in my long recovery process. My balance, strength and flexibility have returned to a level I did not expect to achieve again. I love the class and highly recommend the practice of Tai Chi to all, especially seniors!
