Rocco motivates his students to push forwards no matter what the difficulties that lie ahead. Rocco inspired his students to pursue higher education, military service, and to teach martial arts at
various programs throughout New York City. He instilled the core values to everything they did in order to succeed. Rocco has changed the lives of countless young men and women who would have otherwise been
influenced by all types of negative behavior.
Mr. Lombardo has dedicated countless hours to providing services that connect people with opportunities to enhance their quality of life.
He continues to dedicate his ambitious nature to creating programs for individuals in Northeastern PA.,
while working diligently with families to improve their opportunities and skills to achieve their dreams. He works with young people to
uncover their potential through mentorship and the facilitation of job opportunities.
His work as a martial Arts instructor for 35 years at multiple locations has led him to open a Tae Kwon Do training facility in Brodheadsville, PA.,
offering the same high standards, individual attention and motivation that he feels each student deserves.
Rocco exemplifies the true meaning of service to others.
Mr. Lombardo’s friends, peers and his thousands of students are grateful to have been part of the journey. They congratulate him on his outstanding success, dedication, committment and friendship
