Chief Instructor Wendi Bacon

Origi-MAUL Program Developer


Wendi Bacon is a 3rd Dan Black-belt in both WTF and ITF Tae-Kwon-Do. As a kid, she trained in ITF Tae-Kwon-Do with her father, 4th Dan Duane Bacon. He created a free Tae-Kwon-Do program for under-privileged youths at the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrenceville, Georgia.

After training there, Wendi continued the legacy by creating and, for four years, running a free Tae-Kwon-Do program at the Geneva Boys & Girls Club in New York. There she also met and trained under 7th Dan Master Tina Felice in WTF and ITF Tae-Kwon-Do, eventually assisting with classes and grading in the WTF style. She eventually moved to Cambridge, UK, to pursue a PhD and, ultimately, to found MAUL.

In 2016 she tore her ACL training in Jiu Jitsu, and after knee reconstructive surgery returned to martial arts to earn her 3rd Dan black-belt in 2017 with Master Tina.
