Senior 1st DAN
L5 Junior Assistant
My name is Anya Lawson. I started Taekwondo as I enjoyed being active, but I was also learning how to protect myself in a disciplined way. At first I was nervous as there are lots of moves to remember, but Travis and Janet are great at coaching and helped me remember the routines. I achieved my 1st DAN Black Belt in February 2020 and I look forward to working towards my 2nd DAN in the next couple of years.
I also started helping out with the junior coaching lessons on Saturday, which I love doing. I feel my confidence has really grown since being in the academy. Especially supporting with the junior coaching, and occasionally with the grading. I don’t worry about giving out instructions to people anymore and I like helping younger members learn their routines. My friends are also impressed with how high & fast I can kick, but with accuracy & control. I look forward to the many years ahead with Travis, Janet and the TaeKwonDo Academy.
