Claudia Suarez, V Dan

Claudia began studying Taekwon-Do in 1992 under the direction of her father, earning her first black belt in 1999.  Claudia returned to QTC in 2011, taking on position of full-time instructor, earning her V Dan in 2017.  Claudia’s dedication to teaching and her relationship with all her children is admirable and inspiring. 


In recent years Claudia has returned to competition, regularly earning gold medals in most local and national competitions.  In 2018 Claudia won double gold for Individual Patterns and Individual Sparring at the Pan-American Championship in Santos, Brasil!  Claudia qualified for Team USA at the 2017 ITF World Championships in Dublin Ireland, and also for the 2019 World Championships to be held in Inzell, Germany in 2019.  Claudia’s presence at the school as both an instructor and competitor has contributed greatly to the distinction of QTC’s teaching staff!
