Taralyn SorensonMaster Instructor Taralyn Sorenson – 6th Degree Black Belt

Master Sorenson got her BS in Psychology and  worked with at-risk teens for 15 years in various positions, including youth services and rape recovery. When she started Taekwondo with her children, she found herself wondering how the children in social services would be different if they had the skills she and her children were gaining from Taekwondo. Thus, in 2002 she opened Competitive Taekwondo Club (now Beyond Sports) with her friend and mentor Master James Bartholomew. She has continued working with children, teens, and adults ever since, teaching them to have confidence and create their own futures. In addition to her work at BST, she teaches self defense regularly at local high schools, junior highs, and elementary schools with the hope of instilling strength in the youth of her community. She has four children, two granddaughters, and a wonderful husband who supports her work.

Master Page started Taekwondo over 16 years ago and loves it still. She was a 2002 national champion and ran the Cedar City Extension of CTC (now Beyond Sports) at SUU for three years. She graduated from SUU in 2007 with a degree in English and Accounting before rejoining Beyond Sports in 2008 as an owner. While her mother, Master Sorenson, manages the teaching, Master Page enjoys being behind the scenes. Known as “The Formatting Ninja,” she manages the look and feel of the studio and keeps it running smoothly. She is also the coach for BST’s official demonstration team, Beyond Force. Master Page is grateful for her husband Michael, who supports her work at the studio. Both of their young daughters spend their days at BST and have been adopted as the studio mascots.

Master Eyre was introduced to the martial arts in 1978 at the age of 16. He reached the rank of red belt in an ITF association before he left for an LDS Mission to San Jose, California. He attended Brigham Young University, and graduated from the program of Manufacturing Engineering. While there he attended several martial arts clubs. After graduation, he took a 15 year hiatus from the martial arts while he and his wife Julianne focused on raising their family of 5 children. In 2003, he joined CTC (now Beyond Sports) and was excited to earn his Black Belt, at last, in the summer of 2004. He earned his 2nd Degree the following year, his 3rd Degree in 2009, and his Masters (4th Degree) in January of 2014. Master Eyre particularly enjoys self defense, poomsae, and breaking things.
