Over 19 Years Martial Arts Experience
Red Sash 5th Son - Black Lotus Boxing
WITS Certified Personal Trainer

Since the age of five, Kevin Smith grew up knowing his passion for Martial Arts. However, even with over 19 years of experience it wasn’t until age 20 that Kevin began his formal training. Beginning in 1998, he studied under the leadership of Master Kwon at Kwon’s Tae Kwon Do. In 2000, Kevin studied under Masters Ron and James Hill at HillClan Martial Arts and Fitness. From there, Kevin studied specific elements of dozens of martial arts forms, combining them to become well-rounded in both principle and skill. In 2004, Kevin was accepted as a student by Black Lotus Boxing through invitation only, based on his character, drive, and skill. For 8 years he trained under his Sifu Andrew Smith and earned Red Sash 5th Son ranking. Kevin has rejoined the Hill Brothers, bringing his martial arts and fitness experiences to help develop fitness enthusiasts through the Hill Brothers Fitness program.
