When did you start taekwondo: About 5 years ago.
Why did you start Taekwondo:
I wanted to learn a martial art and how to defend myself.
Your favourite part about Taekwondo:
Sparring and teaching. Sparring keeps me fit and healthy, and I love seeing the next generation develop.
What have you achieved so far:
I have achieved a bronze medal at the British National Championships along with other gold/silver/bronze medals around the country in Open Championships. However my greatest achievement has to be when I was selected to be part of the Great Britain Development Team in 2015!
My goals are to reach the National Team once again and represent my club and country internationally, also to finish the year ranked no.1 in the country and get a gold medal at the Nationals. This would be amazing as I am only a first year Junior!
Your other hobbies/interests:
I don’t really have many other hobbies as my life is taken up by taekwondo. I usually do my school work during my break/lunch times at school and then get home, have my dinner then go to the club.
However I still find time to spend with my friends and family as they are also a big part of my life! I don’t really mind doing taekwondo most nights of the week as not only does it keep me fit and healthy; but it provides brilliant opportunities for the future!
