Zachary S. Verhelle

zachZach joined F.S.D.C in the fall of 2009, at the age of 12, and proceeded to take great interest in the martial arts and earn his black belt in August of 2013 and his 2nd degree black belt in June of 2015. He likes to train 3-4 days a week at the dojo during the summer. During the school year, Zach teaches his own students at his own dojo.

He was nominated for Top Karate-ka ages 13-17 in 2012. His interests outside of karate include photography, playing the piano, golfing, playing any sport, and studying for school. As a black belt, he plans on teaching a martial arts class wherever he is. Eventually he hopes to advance through the many degrees of black belt.
