I, Mark Austin, am the owner/instructor of Cutting Edge Martial Arts. I have been teaching martial arts since 2004 and possesses the ranks of 2nd Kyu in Jundokan Goju-ryu Karate and 3rd Dan in Kukkiwon/WTF Olympic Taekwondo, with an honorary 1st Dan in Aikijujutsu, as well as years of training in Aikido, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Krav Maga, Tai Chi, and a smattering of other martial arts.
I was assistant instructor at Taekwondo West in Bozeman, MT from 2005-2010, at which point I became manager and primary instructor. In late 2011 I began teaching Taekwondo in Big Sky, MT and in June 2013 opened a second Cutting Edge Martial Arts School in Bozeman.
I also graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors in Computer Science from Gonzaga University in 2004. Aside from martial arts, I enjoy reading and writing a wide variety of material, and designing/programming video and board games.
