When did you start Taekwondo?
I started taekwondo a few years ago to help my son who joined the club the previously. He loved it so much and was always practising at home, so I thought I’d better get an insight into the sport, to be able to assist him properly with his technique. I then fell in love with taekwondo myself and have been training hard since. My daughter and husband also attend classes now so, it’s a bit of a family obsession.
What do you most enjoy about Taekwondo?
I love all aspects of taekwondo but, I especially enjoy the Poomsae and working on kicking techniques.
I love being an Instructor at the club and seeing the children progress week by week. It is amazing to see their technique develop and see their joy when they achieve new goals.
Tell us about your success and achievements:
I have achieved a gold medal at the Ultimate Poomsae competition and fought in a 1-2-1 sparring competition. I am very proud of myself for taking on a new challenge at my age.
I have opened 2 associate clubs which continue to grow and have successfully taken my students through gradings. I am very proud of all of them.
