Olympian | Martial Artist | Stunt Performer
I started taking taekwondo classes at the age of 8 simply because my dad got fed up with me watching to much television. Growing up I had taking part in other sports such as swimming, skating, and gymnastics but nothing ever really stuck. So how did tkd stick? Well… like any martial arts school owner would know, “sell the annual membership!”. That is exactly how I wasn’t allowed to quit! My parents paid for it so I was not allowed to waste their funds. I continued with my regular classes twice a week just like any other kid, learning patterns, self-defense (hapkido/aikido/judo), sparring, board breaking in order to move up in the ranks. I had always competed locally but it was always for recreational purposes until I saw Dominique Bosshart win Canada the bronze medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics when taekwondo became an official Olympic sport.
