I’m Kevin Putala, welcome to my website. I’m a writer, an Army veteran, retired martial artist, Husband, Dad, and Proud Grandpa.
I began my writing journey in April 2020 after getting laid off from my job at 54 years of age due to the COVID pandemic. I have always been an avid reader, majoring in English and art in school, and knew I had a book inside of me.
While working my full-time job, I use my extra hours during the day to work on my writing and learn about online business. I am currently working on my first book A Tang Soo Do Life, recounting my training in the art of Tang Soo Do Korean Karate in a small village in South Korea during the mid-1980s. I am writing this for all students of the art and to pass on the legacy to future generations.
This is my journey, and I invite you to join me!
WORK IN PROGRESS
Kevin is currently working on his first book, A Tang Soo Do Life, recounting his training in South Korea in the mid-1980s under Traditional Tang Soo Do master, the late Master Yun Tak Bong.
His final gift to the martial arts after spending over 35 years teaching and sharing the art of Tang Soo Do, Kevin tells of the traditional old school training and dojang where many students came, but only a few endured, earned their black belt, and went on to teach and share the art and legacy.
