This award honors Master Eric Heintz. Through the 1980s and 1990s, Master Heintz and his wife, Master Kaye Baer, ran the Eric Heintz Black Academy, teaching martial arts skills but also improving their students' lives in many ways. In the process, Master Heintz grew a community of black belts that we call our "Tae Kwon Do family". With Master Heintz's retirement, some of those black belts formed Two Rivers Martial Arts with the mission of continuing to teach Tae Kwon Do as it was taught at the Eric Heintz Black Belt Academy and passing on the principles and traditions learned there. This award is given to individuals who have supported Two Rivers in the spirit in which it was created.
