I keep telling people: starting and training in taekwondo has been the best thing I’ve decided to do for me, in over 10 years.
Attending the first training session was hard, followed by making it a habit, after creating a new neuropathway and developing the habit, the next hardest thing was my first grading, I almost fainted probably Haha!
After that it became more than just taekwondo, it became an opportunity for self-development and improvement in all aspects of my life. The Instructors helped me to challenge myself and challenge the way I previously coped. With a caring and compassionate nudge in the right direction or a look of discernment which helped me to look within, at my morals and question my behaviour, creating self-control and integrity.
I’m currently 3rd Kup brown tip, 27 years old and hope to achieve brown belt at the next grading. I rang Master Instructor to start martial arts to gain confidence, learn effective self-defense and to better myself. Master Instructor in response to my procrastination and hesitation with starting that night, said – “If not now, when?
So I ventured to Arana Hills branch that night and never stopped going.
