Ron Elgey (RIP) in 2002. Ron sadly passed away a few years later.
Nathan Creevey has been training at Blackwater Taekwon-Do since 1988, he also has an extensive background in Karate and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Nathan actively competed growing up representing Blackwater Taekwon-Do.

Nathan is the son of Blackwater Taekwon-Do Co-founder Neville Creevey Senior and comes from a family of instructors and Black Belts. Nathan has trained under Taekwon-Do pioneers Cheah Wee-Hin, and Russell Fallon.

Nathan still runs his father's school in the local community, adding to what he learned in Russell Fallon's system with the JDK methodology. 

Nathan's thoughts on TKD and martial arts ...

Training has changed immensely from the 1980s and 1990s, the applications we were doing in the early 90s are nothing compared to what Colin has spent years developing in JDK HQ. The early stuff we did was a literal translation of forms.

"You learn a structure to liberate yourself from structure." 

Several years ago, I was fortunate to meet Colin online, and was thrilled to have the opportunity to be mentored by him. While his lineage is similar to the instructors I had trained with, Colin's system and training methodology fills in the gaps in hard style martial arts training, and makes fundamentals come alive. Additionally, Colin has developed an atmosphere of creativity, and self-guided development that has allowed me to grow as an instructor.

I am proud to represent Joong Do Kwan in Queensland, and invite you to visit me if you are in the region.
