For the past 3 1/2 years, Stobie has been training and taking instructions from Master Karl Gassmann, who started the DoJang in Pickens and eventually moved it to Dacusville as the number of students increased. The DoJang now has 31 students and is located on S.C. Highway 183 in Dacusville. For more information, call (864) 752-8535.    Kerry Gilstrap/Courier
