I love what I do because I get the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. I understand that every student may not receive what I teach, but just being able to challenge a student to the point where THEY CHOOSE to rise to the occasion and get better at something new makes it all worthwhile.

John BellMaster, Vortexic Martial Arts

A little about me

Master Bell started martial arts when he was a young child under the guidance of his father, who holds black belts in several martial arts disciplines. Master Bell was most attracted to art of Hapkido and has since achieved his 5th degree in black belt under the tutelage of Grandmaster J.K. Choi with UMA Hapkido. Master Bell is celebrating 8 years of marriage and has one son. He currently leads our Hapkido program in Katy at our main location.

More about me

Master Bell also works full time as the Director of Operations for his company. When he’s not fulfilling that role, or teaching Hapkido, he is spending time with his family. Master Bell expertise has allowed us to expand our program and provide a new challenge to our students. Life quote, “Live life to the fullest and make every second count.”
