Advanced 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 an Advanced 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 with. 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 1-1 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.
In 2018, I organised a TaeKwonDo taster day where we had roughly 150 children aged 10 & 11 years old attend. The aim was 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.
