About Master Docarmo
When Anne (Top) Docarmo began taking Tang Soo Do lessons over 40 years ago in Montgomery, she never dreamed she would be teaching martial arts. However, over the course of years the benefits of her Taekwondo Program have become so apparent that she delights in what she does at Docarmo's Taekwondo Center.
"Taekwondo training is so popular because no other activity can provide the same positive results, on a personal level, for each individual participant. Whether your goals are self-confidence, self-defense, personal development, fitness, flexibility, or to earn a black belt, Docarmo's Taekwondo Center will take you there."
Master Docarmo is a World Taekwondo Federation 6th degree black belt making her one of the highest ranking female black belts in the country, and a nationally recognized coach with students attending and placing in all of the USA Taekwondo's major events including the Nationals, the Collegiate Games, the Junior Olympics, and the U.S. Open. She was the 1st female Black Belt in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1976. Besides successfully directing hundreds of students to the national level and being a national silver medalist herself, Master Docarmo has had her hand in community work volunteering her time to raise money for such organizations as Girls, Inc., the D.A.R.E program, the Boys & Girls Home, the Children's Miracle Network Telethon, Relay for Life, the Alabama Autistic Society, and the American Red Cross. Her students also collect canned goods annually to donate to the Montgomery Area Food Bank. Master Docarmo has twice been elected to the Women Aware Awards and has received a Citation for Good Works from the World Taekwondo Federation.
Her training has taken her to Korea where she trained with Korean National Coach, Pak Choi Chul. She consistently offers workshops & seminars to local and regional martial arts students bringing in national level names like 1992 Olympic Gold Medalist Herb Perez and 1988/1992 Olympic Silver Medalist Juan Miguel Moreno.
Despite her achievements, Master Docarmo says FAMILY is the focus of her Center where family members work out together and experience the benefits that her program has to offer. She feels proud of the family atmosphere her Center provides. "There are not a lot of places that families can go that offer support and provide an activity the whole family can participate in together. Our program affirms that togetherness."
Master Docarmo feels fortunate to have been influenced by many great martial artists including GM James Wade Lewis, Masters Houma & Lisa Maka, Master Chris Blades,
Master Joanne Nelson, Master Lance Farrell, Master Frankie Williams, Master Oren Gatreaux, Grand Master Yun Sun Chung, & Grand Master Joon Pyo Choi. She does, however, feel her greatest lessons
in martial arts have come from her students.
Master Docarmo's family includes son Alex, & daughters Allie & Andie.
