At Grimsley's Fighting Arts, we create a positive, energizing, & safe environment for our students to learn & apply their martial arts to their lives. It's more than kicks & punches at GFA. We help mold our students into upstanding citizens and create future leaders for our community!
With over 40 years of experience, Master David Grimsley has multiple accomplishments, from personal experiences to helping students and others to reach their own goals and achievements. He personally has competed and placed in the Tae Kwon Do National Tournament in 1983, and has also had over 40 students who placed in the Junior Olympic Tae Kwon Do Tournament for the Nation as well as several others tournaments
In 1983, he earned his 1st Degree Black Belt in Tang Soo Do. That same year, he also started his legacy in St Marys, Georgia: Grimsley’s Fighting Arts. Master G is one of only three people in the United Tang Soo Do Federation to reach his 8th degree black belt. In 1993, his daughter, Master Logan Grimsley, was born, and would soon be on her way to her own records and personal bests. She is currently a 4th degree black belt and also teaches at Grimsley’s Fighting Arts.
Master Grimsley can still be found in the Dojang today, still doing what he loves. He is 62 years old and still trains people of all ages, from four years old to seniors. He still breaks blocks and boards and encourages all of our staff to do the same and achieve their goals and dreams. He is a constant source of inspiration in our school and is always eager to welcome new students and help them become the best that they can be.
Master Logan has been training in Tang Soo Do since she was three years old. She took part in her first public karate demonstration at four years old, and she has performed in front of countless audiences since then. She started volunteering at Grimsley’s Fighting Arts when she was twelve, and since then, she has continued her training, earning her 4th degree black belt in November 2017. Her goals of earning higher degrees continues to be a focus while growing her family. She believes the old-school ethics of our martial Art teaches respect, courage, perseverance, and integrity – values that she plans to instill into her and Mr. Alec’s daughter, Blakelynn, just as Grandmaster Grimsley did in her. Now a Master in her own right, Logan Grimsley Bradford is COO at Grimsley’s Fighting Arts and continues to teach and train new students.
It is her goal to provide students with a positive, disciplined, yet friendly, goal-driven environment for students to flourish in their martial arts training. She can be found out on the floor every single day, working with her students and encouraging them to achieve their goals.
As a small boy Mr. Bradford was instructed in self-defense by his father Joe Bradford, who is retired law enforcement for the State of Georgia and formerly served in the United States Army. He introduced him to different types of martial arts training such as wrestling, grappling, pressure points, locks, and joint manipulation. Trained in Tang Soo Do since the age of 11, he originally came from a different school where he had trained for 3 ½ years. In 2009, he became a full time student with us. He is a 4th Degree Black Belt in Tang Soo Do.
Mr. Bradford is very dedicated to finding better ways to teach others not only Tang Soo Do but a different variety of styles and techniques. He takes pride in finding both strengths and weaknesses in all of his training to better himself and others in self-defense situations. His goal is to continue his journey in Tang Soo Do beyond Master in the near future. Mr. Bradford is a current Instructor here at Grimsley’s and enjoys teaching others when he is not working and training.
