Local Legends: Dustin Musick

Dustin Shane Musick was born in Enid Oklahoma to Loretta and Tennis Musick. His parents moved to the hills of Kentucky while he was still young and he attended schools there until he was 15. They moved back to Enid in 1985, moving right next door to his grandmother. Family is very important to him coming right behind God. He grew up as an only child but always yearned for siblings and a large family and now has a huge family both by blood and by choice. He loved sports, playing on several teams in school. He was in line for a baseball scholarship until a shoulder injury took him away from that path. He played on the adult Enforcers football team for a couple of years and he still loves all sports.

He is now 52 years old and has been married to his beautiful wife for 20 years, has 11 children, both biological and adopted. He has 6 children in the home, and 5 adult children living out of the house, the youngest being 3, and oldest 35, not to mention the countless children him and his wife have opened their arms and hearts to without hesitation. Their home is full of family and love. He has owned several businesses, including appliance repair, photography, and a security company. After 20 years in law enforcement/security, Dustin retired from the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office but has also worked with numerous departments around the Enid area.

Dustin began training in martial arts at the age of 6, when his parents found an instructor who would teach him for free. Now, he runs a MMA, Kickboxing, TaeKwonDo, Jui-jitsu, and Boxing studio. He currently offers a free TaeKwonDo program for ages 5-17, to help the at-risk youth in the community. He is the Founder of Humanitarian School of Martial Arts and has taught for 22 years in the Enid area. He created the program in hopes of making a difference in the lives of the youth of the community like the free lessons he received as a child. He currently has plans to teach children on the base through a program they are developing. He was inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame in the early 2000s and went to training camps including one with Frank Shamrock, former middleweight UFC fighter.

Dustin holds various ranks in several styles he has studied over the years including Grand Master of TaeKwonDo. He has worked with Chuck Norris and Bill “Superfoot” over the years. He has awarded around 28 black belts over the years and is so proud of each and every student for achieving this rank. Only a small percentage of those students still practice or teach martial arts but most of the others have gone on in life to accomplish great things. Not every story is rosy though, 6 of those black belts were awarded posthumously upon their death. It is the tradition of HSMA to award the highest rank, 10th dan to those who pass on before they reach the ultimate goal.

If this all was not enough, in his free time he is a substitute teacher, plays bass in a local band called “The RevoLt”, plays with the worship band at the church and gives private guitar and vocal lessons.  He has recently graduated from Central Christian College with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and minor in Psychology, achieving a long time goal. Loves going to lake with family and friends, camping out and fishing.  Over the years he has worn many different hats …. son, husband, father, poppop, officer, brother, grand master, sir, friend, the list goes on and on but the best one is child of God. He is a true Local Legend!
