Student Profile: Alan Johnson

Alan Johnson

1st Kup Red Belt Black Stripe

Qualified Instructor

Favourite things about taekwondo:
I enjoy practising my skills on the pads, as well as the sparring and fitness. I also enjoy spending time with the people I train with – we all get on really well, which makes it fun.

Benefits of taekwondo:
TKD keeps me fit and healthy. Learning self defence has helped a lot with my confidence. It keeps me active and it’s always good meeting new people.

Future taekwondo goals:
My goals are to be better at tournaments, to keep working on my fitness and to reach black belt.

Career highlights:
My favourite achievement so far is gaining the confidence to do sparring, as this was one of my weaknesses. Since then I have been competing in tournaments and will continue to attend more to gain more experience.
