About Event Director: Will Just

Will Just has experience in various martial arts and combat sports. He primarily focuses on evolving Taekwondo with the insight gained through the practice and application of Kata.

Will has integrated his art into the world of off-grid living. Will believes that understanding our intention, assessing the self within the present, and mitigating how we use and identify body language, can help us open our senses to the multidimensional landscape of the world. We can then integrate these skills to other aspects of life.

Will believes mental visualization training from the martial arts helps the tactition to deal with duress and stressful situations. Will brings the dojo into the real world by working as a high-angle rescue technician, a wilderness paramedic, wildland firefighter, and has been a leader in disaster relief efforts.

Will holds a 5th Dan under Grandmaster Les Zampino and is a JDK affiliate blackbelt under Master Colin Wee.

Of the upcoming seminar in New York, Will says “I’m overcome with excitement to bring Master Colin Wee to the Capital region. His tactical insight, which he gains from the Kata, integrated with his rich life experience creates an atmosphere of a true Master. It is simply extraordinary.”

Host School: Northeast Taekwondo Academy

Northeast Taekwondo Academy is one of the pioneer martial art schools in the Capital District. Owned and operated by Grandmaster Les Zampino, this school was established in 1977. Visit Northeast Taekwondo (which we are using as our seminar venue) in person or online at

Will would like to express his gratitude: “Grandmaster Les Zampino has been so accommodating to us. He has over 50 years of experience in traditional and sport style Taekwondo, and is always willing to support his students inside and outside of the Dojang. ”
