3rd Degree Black Belt
GTI National Squad Member
Favourite things about taekwondo:
I like most aspects of taekwondo, particularly pad work (hitting things is very therapeutic)! I also love the team spirit within the club and in the GTI – especially at tournaments, where we all cheer each other on.
Benefits of taekwondo:
Learning to push myself beyond my expectations, and not giving up so easily when the going gets tough.
Feeling fitter, stronger and more confident.
Future taekwondo goals:
At the moment, just to carry on training and competing for as long as my body lets me!
