Master Richard Collins Jr

The Professional Karate Schools of America (PKSA) was founded by Master Richard R. Collins, Jr. in 2000. He started martial arts with his father in 1969 at the age of 4. After being highly successful in martial arts competitions, he began to create champions who would win all over the world. Master Collins has four decades of Tang Soo Do experience and has developed an organization of close to 40 schools all dedicated to the highest quality of martial arts training.

His commitment to his organization takes him throughout the United States for belt testing, seminars, tournaments, and other PKSA-related functions. He is highly sought for his business knowledge and continues to create ambitious instructors who are hungry to help their communities through teaching the martial art of Tang Soo Do Moo Duk Kwan.
