Logan Dheming

William Logan Dhem­ing was born near Atlanta, Geor­gia in Sep­tem­ber 1999. After mov­ing to Nashville at the age of 4, he began study­ing karate at David Deaton, Mt. Juli­et on Novem­ber 3, 2003. There were times dur­ing his ear­ly train­ing when he and his par­ents thought he may not make it through, as he had some injuries that caused him to be appre­hen­sive to remain in karate. How­ev­er, with the help of God, Mr. Spence, Mr. Sewell and Mr. Tyler, he over­came his fear of being re-injured and con­tin­ued his train­ing.

Mr. Dhem­ing went through a phase in his life where he was unwill­ing to learn, had an unhealthy diet as well as had a mediocre atti­tude towards mar­tial arts. In time, how­ev­er, he came to dis­cov­er the rea­son for his train­ing was not just to become a bet­ter fight­er, but also a bet­ter human being all around with a health­i­er body and a health­i­er spir­it, which com­pelled him to con­tin­ue train­ing towards the goal of black belt. His father joined karate in 2011 and received his black belt in 2014. This helped also to inspire Mr. Dhem­ing to work hard and do his best, just like his dad.

He earned his 1st-degree black belt in Sep­tem­ber 2008 at the age of 9. After­wards, he had a brand-new goal of becom­ing an instruc­tor of the karate stu­dio, to work along­side his teach­ers as one him­self. Spend­ing the next 4 years train­ing and work­ing towards his next rank, he received his 2nd-degree black belt and also became a S.W.A.T. mem­ber in Sep­tem­ber 2012 at the age of 13. For the next 3 years, he stud­ied under Mr. Tyler, Mr. Spence, Ms. De Laby, Mr. Tate and Mr. Sewell to reach his goal of becom­ing an instruc­tor. On Sep­tem­ber of 2015, he final­ly reached his goal in becom­ing an instruc­tor.

Even though I final­ly reached my goal of becom­ing an instruc­tor, I still have much to learn in karate train­ing that will help me through­out my life. Spir­i­tu­al­ly, men­tal­ly and phys­i­cal­ly, my jour­ney in life is just begin­ning and I am so excit­ed for what the future brings!” – Mr. William Logan Dhem­ing

Mr. Dhem­ing also began attend­ing Vol State at the age of 16 and is study­ing to be a cyber defense expert, hop­ing to one day be an agent with the Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­ri­ty. He plans on con­tin­u­ing his train­ing in karate for many more years, as this will bet­ter pre­pare him for his train­ing and career with DHS.
