Instructors

Master Brian Costello, Founder

A 5th degree black belt, Master Costello has been practicing martial arts for over 39 years. He started the school in 1984, teaching primarily Tang Soo Do and Jujitsu. As the school evolved, he began adding full contact fighting and reality based combat training to the curriculum. In the early 90's he integrated these styles to form the Jung Su School of Martial Arts. Having trained in Tang Soo Do, Shotokan, Jujitsu and Kick Boxing, he continues to teach and learn alongside his students. Having instructed thousands of martial artists over the years, his personal philosophy is to work hard each time you step into the Dojang and strive for constant improvement.

Master Costello is a professional fight official for both Mixed Martial Arts and Boxing and serves as a special consultant to the state of VA for training professional MMA judges. In 2007, Master Costello received the "Martial Arts Judge of the Year" award from the Virginia Department of Occupation and Regulation for his outstanding contributions to professional fighting sports.
