In 1992, Herb Perez achieved his dream. He entered the Olympic arena in Barcelona and won the United States’ only Gold Medal in the Olympic Sport of Taekwondo. He currently serves on the Foster City Council and is the former Mayor of Foster City.
Through years of sacrifice and training which culminated in the realization of his Olympic dream, Perez learned the value of patience, determination and perseverance. “I was fortunate to wander into a martial arts school at a young age and learn valuable life-skills that taught me how to succeed in academics, sport, and life. I felt a need to share the lessons I had learned throughout my life with others,” states Perez.
