Prado is the owner of Champion Taekwondo Institute in Hammond, where he’s been in business for 5 years. Starting with only three students, Champion Taekwondo has thrived under Prado’s leadership.
Taekwondo has brought some positive responsibilities, such as being Director of Media Relations for the Illinois Taekwondo State Association (“ITSA”) and teaching a disciplined sport to children, teens and adults. Working closely with the President of the ITSA and the Event Coordinator, Prado has successfully coordinated State Championship tournaments in the State of Illinois and Indiana.
After graduating high school, Prado became the first of his family to graduate from college, receiving a degree in Multimedia and is currently finalizing his Bachelor’s in Business Management from Robert Morris University.
Prado’s inspiration has always been his family. Running a family owned business with his wife Silvia allows him to spend time with all of them. His oldest son, Tito, is an assistant instructor at the young age of 13. Tito, a second-degree black belt, is an accomplished Taekwondo Athlete and Honor Student. He is also a member of the USA Taekwondo Organization where he is recognized as an official American Athlete in the sport of Taekwondo. Silvia Prado is a graduate of Robert Morris University with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration. Silvia was also the first of her family to attend college, graduating from high school in three years. She coordinates all events for Champion Taekwondo by working with the parents and students.
Prado’s strong belief is that Hammond should be governed for the people, by the people. Prado believes that career politicians continue to run for themselves rather than for the people that put them in office. The citizens of Hammond deserve a transparent administration where they have the power to guide Hammond back on course.
