The head Instructor at Mad River Taekwon-Do is Shawn Sicely.  A native Vermonter, he currently holds the rank of 7th Degree Black Belt in Taekwon-Do thru Grandmaster Donnelly and a 5th Degree Black Belt in Taekwon-Do thru Grandmaster Suk Jun Kim and Taekwon-Do

Starting Taekwon-Do in 1990 at Donnelly's Martial arts center Master Sicely earned the rank of Green belt and then had to stop practicing due to other interests. Soon after graduating from high school Master Sicely took up studing Taekwon-Do again. After practicing Taekwon-Do under several different instructors he met Grandmaster S.J. Kim and now consider him his instructor.  

After teaching at Donnelly's and several different places throughout Northern Vermont, Master Sicely took over Mad River Taekwon-Do in March of 2012 after his close friend and previous owner Master Garth Genge passed away due to an illness.  Having taught for Master Genge at Mad River TKD on several occasions it was students that actually asked Master Sicely if he was interested in taking over the school. Honored by the outpouring of support, Shawn relaunched Mad River TKD.

Now Mad River Taekwon-Do offers classes to anyone interested in learning the traditional art of Taekwon-Do regardless of age and ability.
