It was an advert in a local paper that brought my interest into the World Tang Soo Do Association. My daughter started training in 2002 and like so many other parents I decided to join in as well after watching from the sidelines. I started training in 2003 and received my Black Belt 1st Dan in 2007.
My contribution to the association has been to take on the secretarial role for the Warwick District club and subsequently I am now the instructor. In addition to this I have helped in many fundraising events for both the Warwick District club and the Coventry & Warwickshire Region. I have entered numerous Regional, National and European championships with my highest achievement being placed 2nd at the European Championships held in Holland 2011.
For future students:
Believe in yourself and you will succeed. There is no age limit or physical ability that will hold you back. I obtained my 1st Dan black belt at the age of 47 and my 2nd Dan aged 53!
