Mr. Jorge Farelas
Senior Office Manager - 1st Dan

  • Began his TaeKwon-Do training in 1984 in West Chicago, IL where Master Langlas had his school.  He was six years old at the time and remembers how fun Master Langlas' classes were.  While training as a youngster Jorge learned the basics of TaeKwon-Do as well as the teaching methods from the perspective of a child.

  • Jorge left for some time, but he returned as a teenager in 1997 at the Winfield location.  He was instructed once again by Master Langlas, and this time he learned the teaching methods from the perspective of a teenager.  

  • Jorge is now an adult and has used the knowledge that he acquired from Master Langlas as well as many of his TaeKwon-Do instructors to teach children, teenagers, and adults at Pathways for Achievement.  He is also the Senior Office Manager.  Many of the classes that he teaches have very young and active students.  Along with his wife and Co-office manager Chelsea, the Farelas' bring TaeKwon-Do to their level, and they provide for them the basic framework that they need in order to progress in their training.

  • Achieved 1st Dan in 2002

  • Jorge also has experience in Yoshitaka Karate, Kenpo Karate, Shaolin Longfist Kung Fu, Hapkido, Tang Soo Do, and Krav Maga.
