About Our Instructors
A long lineage of traditional instruction
Kwanjangnim Grandmaster Bolega
Grandmaster Bolega has been teaching Taekwondo and Hapkido for over 40 years. Because his school was established before taekwondo was recognized as an official Olympic sport he was able to become the first Olympic school in the state. He has competed, placed, coached, and referred at the national level here in the states, and internally in Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Grandmaster Penelope Bolega
Grandmaster Penelope has been teaching Tae Kwon Do and Hap Ki Do for the entire 35 years she and Grandmaster Bolega have been married. Like her husband, she has competed, coached, placed, referred nationally, and internationally. The list of awards and accolades goes on and on.
Master Matthew Kreischer
Master Instructor, Sabomnim
Sabomnim is a qualified instructor in both Taekwondo and Hapkido. He has taught all around the country from Florida to Utah, and had been an instructor for the Bolegas for 12 years before taking over the instruction of the East West Studio. He is a full time teacher and coach for our students, and also keeps an active participation in tournaments regionally and nationally.

Assistant Instructor, Sunsangnim
Character development plays an essential role in taekwondo. The building of character requires physical perseverance in conjunction with an appropriate mental attitude.
Do Jang Etiquette
Taekwondo can be regarded as a mental education to cultivate the noble character of the person who practices this art.
Together, the instructors will try to tailor to your needs and give you the best instruction possible. It is our goal to promote and better our art through student participation.
East West Martial Arts members think in terms of brothers and sisters, and the effort to strengthen and preserve this art is a communal one.
