Martial Arts Philosophy I simply have desire to spread the wealth of knowledge that I have gained through proper instruction to other federation members...deep inherent desire to make sure my students are as good as I can possibly make them.













Master Fred Klies began his martial arts journey over 43 years ago at the Waterbury Boys Club under the direction of Grandmaster Cheezic. He credits one of Grandmaster’s high-ranking students at the time, now Master Robert Doyle, with assisting in his instruction. A motorcycle and snowmobile-racing enthusiast, Master Klies is a former kick boxer who currently owns and operates Eastern Cycle Performance in Waterbury, Connecticut.

Master Klies teaches Cheezic Tang Soo Do to students of all ages at Federation Headquarters in Naugatuck, Connecticut. He holds dear Grandmaster’s motto, “Leave more than you take” and strives to encourage success in others every day. Master Klies says, “I simply have desire to spread the wealth of knowledge that I have gained through proper instructor to other federation members.” He is motivated to do so through a “deep inherent desire to make sure my students are as good as I can possibly make them. I could honestly say that my students and federation members have become a part of my extended family. I do indeed love them as a family member should.”
