Decided 1st DAN Black Belt
L2 Trainee Instructor
I started training at TaeKwonDo Academy with Travis in 2016. I have worked very hard, training between 3 and 4 days per week to achieving my goals. I am now a Decided 1st DAN Black Belt, L2 Trainee Instructor. I love TaeKwonDo and would recommend it to anyone. Its a great sport, very inclusive and there's a great team of knowledgeable instructors here.
I attend all events that the TaeKwonDo Academy are involved in. In November 2019, I took part in an Open Martial Arts competition, achieving a 1st Place Trophy. I was so proud of myself. I had put in many extra hours of training with Master Travis in the run up to the competition which definitely paid off.
Our organisation, The TaeKwonDo Academy, did very well as a whole, achieving 51 medals and trophies; 14 of which were 1st Place ! I look forward to our next competition.
I organised a TaeKwonDo taster day where I had roughly 150 children aged 10 & 11 years old at a local school to help improve awareness of TaeKwonDo as a self defence and help improve self confidence ready for the students to start senior school. It was such a great day to be a part of ad even had the teachers getting involved. I look forward to returning to run more sessions at the school.
I have had a lot of support from my instructors, Travis, Janet, Ben & Phil over the past few years. They have guided me in my TaeKwonDo journey. My goal is to continue to work hard, keep going through the ranks to eventually be a TaeKwonDo Master and open my own TaeKwonDo Academy Martial Arts & Self Defence schools.
