What do you enjoy most about Tae Kwon Do?
My greatest satisfaction is gained by seeing a student – (new or a veteran Black Belt) “get it” when teaching them a form. Or, when they break a board after giving them personal insight. I feel rewarded for that experience between a student and myself.
What do you enjoy most about teaching students?
The fun and camaraderie that develops in any given class.
What advice do you have for students who are just starting their martial arts journey?
Stay involved and active. Come to as many classes as possible. I will remind every new White Belt that EVERY student has been where they are, and have experienced the same uneasiness.
