Andrew began studying Rhee Taekwondo as an adult, primarily to try and loose some weight, and get a little fitter. He stayed because it was fun; he made some friends and found some personal mental health advantages in staying.
Andrew took some time out between starting his journey and earning his black belt as his work took him away so it has taken him many years to get there, but thanks to the instructors and other students who all train together, get there he did.
He is a dad with two children, and Sam his son studies Rhee Taekwondo as well. Sam does it because it is ‘awesome’ and because mum and dad appreciate the benefit of the physical skills and discipline for a young boy with ADHD and dyspraxia.
Andrew enjoys a combination of training with and assisting in classes, trying to pass on a combination of the skills that he has learned and the motivation for training, and as a means of honouring those who spent the accumulated hours training me, and sharing an art he values.
