Master Louie Aregis is the owner and Chief Instructor of the Aregis Taekwondo Center, located in Goodlettsville, Tennessee. He began training in Taekwondo in 1984 under the instruction of Master Brad Whitlow in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Upon relocating to Nashville, he continued his training with Grand Master Robert Hardin, who was, at the time, the director of the Mid-American Taekwondo Centers (MATC), now known as the Choong Sil Taekwondo Federation (CTF). Master Aregis established his own school in 1987.
In the mid-1990’s, Master Aregis began teaching for the Adult Education Department in Davidson County. From that endeavor, he developed a successful After School Program in 2001 that continues to serve several local schools, both public and private.
In 2005, Master Aregis earned his Level 3 Instructor Certification, and 2018, he tested for and received his 8 th Dan (degree), as well as his Senior Master Certification, from Grand Master Robert Hardin and the CTF. Master Aregis competed nationally for many years, but today, he is most proud of the competitors who train at his school. Many of his students have won both National and International Championships.
