PTKD Birkby and PTKD Leeds
When did you start Taekwondo?
I started doing Kung Fu in Iran when I was 5 years old and switched to Taekwondo when I was 7. I came to England in 2010 and joined Premier in 2016.
What do you most enjoy about Taekwondo?
I love everything about the sport. I love competing in sparring competitions and I also love teaching. It gives me great satisfaction to see students improve and their sense of achievement is also mine. I love working with children as they make me smile when they try really hard to learn new techniques.
