Advanced 2nd DAN Black Belt
I first became involved in TaeKwonDo when my son, John, joined in 2012. I have watched him progress through the belts and he is now a Senior 2nd DAN Black Belt.
Seeing my son achieve these belts inspired me to give it a go with my other son, Jack; daughter Jessie and more recently my other son, Jamie. Travis also encouraged me to sign up as I sit there watching week in week out. I'm really glad he did as its an amazing sport which I love doing.
I joined in 2014; although I was pregnant at the time I continued to take part in TaeKwonDo I am now a Advanced 2nd DAN Black Belt, Certified Instructor.
I did TaeKwonDo throughout pregnancy, until 2 days before I gave birth and was back 2 weeks after. TaeKwonDo has really helped with weight loss and am now the lightest and fittest I have been in years.
I am now a Qualified Instructor and plan on continuing my training to become a TaeKwonDo Master. Myself and the other instructors have also trained with Paul Green & Gareth Brown (Team GB TaeKwonDo Olympic Coaches) who have coached Team GB Gold medallist Jade Jones.
I currently run classes in Petersfield, and Portsmouth. I continue to train every week to keep me developing further.
I love TaeKwonDo and will continue to encourage other people to join. My youngest child has recently turned 3 so she has now started her TaeKwonDo journey at the Portsmouth club with her siblings.
