ARJUN A. DHINGRA
TEAM USA CO-HEAD COACH
National Taekwon-do Team
For the last 4 World Championships for TaeKwon-Do, Arjun has been serving as the co-head coach for Team USA. Working with athletes all across the country, he considers this a great privilege and opportunity to give back to the art that gave him opportunities to succeed as an athlete. “Coaching athletes and guiding clients have a lot of similar energies. Both moving towards something, trying to attain or achieve and navigate through challenges along the way with my help. I am just as competitive with my clients in trying to help them WIN as I am with the athletes I coach. The focus and intensity levels don’t really vary.”
2 TIME TAEKWON-DO WORLD CHAMPION
(2007 & 2014)
Arjun first qualified to represent Team USA in 2007 for the London games. He was fortunate to prevail in the World Championships and win his first gold medal in the 5th Degree Black Belt section. After falling short in Ottawa in 2012, he won a second gold medal during the World Championships in Rome 2014 in the 6th Degree section. He was the only American during that span to win as a adult in two separate ranking categories and was the first Indian-American TaeKwon-Do athlete to medal at multiple world championships.
Arjun has been serving clients as a licensed mortgage banker for 18 years.
He started his career in 2001, during his final year of college where he was majoring in marketing and economics. Having worked in several businesses through his years of education served him well in developing market sense as well as client negotiation skills. With the ability to lend in 13 states and provide all aspects of the entire mortgage process in-house (processing, underwriting and funding), Arjun is able to provide value to his clients and strategic partners that goes well beyond interest rates and good service.
Clients rely on Arjun’s ability to remain creative in an otherwise challenging lending market. His team are professionals in dealing with the entire lending scope, from seasoned buyers and investors to aspiring first time buyers with challenging loan scenarios. He understand that each loan is a unique story and needs to be approached accordingly, all while maintaining the ability to adapt to an ever changing lending market that constantly issues new guidelines and challenges in the pathway to closing a deal.
During his time away from mortgages, Arjun is active in volunteering, traveling and training in Martial Arts. He currently serves as the National co-head coach for TEAM USA’s TaeKwon-Do group. Having won 2 gold medals in World Championships during his competing years, he remains very connected to the art, using the synergies between business and training that can be applied to dealing with clients and fighting on their behalf.
