I am currenlty a 4th Degree Black Belt. My passion is for teaching traditional Taekwondo and developing the art within my students.

Emily Ingalls, Lead Instructor
I found Taekwondo at the age of 10. At the age of 14, I earned my 1st Degree Black Belt in the ITF. I earned my 2nd Degree Black Belt at the age of 16. I moved to Texas shortly after and started training under the WTF, earning myself a 1st Degree Black Belt at 17. I decided to turn my passion of sports and fitness into my career. I have a Bachelors of Exercise and Sport Science with a Minor in Business from Texas State University - San Marcos. I have a Masters in Sports Management from LSU and a Masters in Business Administration from Texas State University - San Marcos. I worked in the health and fitness industry for 10 years as a Certified Personal Trainer, group exercise instructor, and Program Coordinator. After having my 4 children, I decided to stay home and raise them. In 2015, I enrolled my two oldest boys at Champion's Way Martial Arts. A few months later, I began training in Taekwondo again and haven't looked back.
Candice Miller, Instructor
I started Taekwondo at the age of 12, with the goal of being able to defend myself. What started as taking some classes for basic learning, turned into a passion for Taekwondo and the drive to get a Black Belt. I am now a 2nd Degree Black Belt and a Purple Belt in Kajukenbo. I am so blessed and honored to be an instructor. I love to help others and absolutely love children. I want to do everything I can to help them in achieving their goals and becoming the best they can be.
Christian Kreiter, Instructor
I started Taekwondo at Champion's Way 2011, as a brand new white belt. In early 2012, I joined the SWAT team with the aspiration of becoming a Junior Instructor, which I achieved after a few years. As a member of the Champion's Way Competition Team, I have competed in sparring, weapons, and forms. I am a two-time Texas State Champion and a WMO U.S. National Champion in Black Belt Sparring. Under the instruction of Master Miller, I have progressed through the ranks as one of the first students to start at Champion's Way as a White Belt and continue all the way through 2nd Degree Black Belt. I love connecting with and teaching the younger students, and plan on doing so, for as long as I continue to train.
