Keith Martin-Smith is a 4th generation White Tiger master.
I became a formal disciple of Master Jeon in 2001, meaning I agreed to be trained in the demanding and traditional manner reserved for the most serious of students. In 2002 I was awarded the title of instructor and permitted to teach on my own, and in 2004 elevated to senior instructor.
I co-ran Master Jeon’s Philadelphia school from 2002-2005, leading 9 classes a week. In 2008 I was elevated by Master Jeon to a junior master, and in 2014 to a 4th generation White Tiger master.
This practice has been a cornerstone of my life, providing the experience of an embodied discipline that has helped me achieve other difficult goals. I have an intentionally small school in Boulder, Colorado, with about a dozen dedicated students.
