joe-rush-jidokwan-reunion-bioWork History: Dance Musician at the University of Arizona, Singer-Songwriter-Rock Musician, Electrician, Lab Technician in high-throughput DNA sequencing lab at the University of Arizona, and–currently–Stay-Home Father of Two.

TKD History: Black belt (1980) after studying four years with Sean in high school.  Taught for two years at Conn College after Toby Morral asked me to; my students included Daniel Hays, Andrew Benioff, and many other wonderful, committed people. Studied and taught TKD about a year and a half at the University of Illinois under a very kind man from Korea, Sung Chul Lee; while living in Illinois, visited Conn College for their rank test (thanks to Daniel and Drew), where Sean promoted me to 2nd degree black belt (1987, I think).

Personal: I have an amazing wife, Pauline, two kids, Florie (13) and Kyle (10), and two dogs, a Great Dane and a German Shepherd. The Dane sleeps with us whenever we’ll allow it.
