When did you start Taekwondo?
I started Taekwondo in May 2013
What do you most enjoy about Taekwondo?
I enjoy the competitive side of Taekwondo and really enjoy coaching at competition there no better feeling when the kids win and seeing that happiness on their face so by passing on what I know to students and helping them develop new skills and applying it at competitions it’s great sense of achievement. And I also love teaching in general sessions watching the kids improve and achieve their goals for grading.
