Chuck Reynolds earned the rank of black belt in March of 1989 under the instruction of Mr. Allen Wheeler and Mr. Mark Aycock. He has been blessed with many accomplishments in the martial arts, in and out of the arena of competition. Competition has always been the driving force behind his martial arts career. He has always taken a lot of pride in being a champion in kata, weapons, and fighting.
Mr. Reynolds hopes that all who remember him will not remember him as just a competitor or martial artist, but for the man he strived to be- a man who:
1. Placed His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ first
2. Loved his wife and put her on a pedestal
3. Loved, lead, and learned from his children
4. Tried to make the next generation of students better.
Mr. Reynolds feels being inducted into the Isshinryu Hall of Fame is a great honor for the heritage of his family and The Wheeler Academy.
