What I like best about being an instructor:
I like the fact that as an instructor, you still do not know everything. You have to come every day to train and learn things you did not know before.  What I love best about being an instructor is watching the student grow better and stronger.  Not just physically, but mentally too. I enjoy having to deal with children others would consider difficult.  When I work with them and see them change into a better person over time, I can say that I was someone who helped that student become the person they are now.  It amazes me to see the change.  I also like talking with parents about the child.  It gives me a better perspective on what the parent expects of the child, and I feel as if I understand the child better to help them become a better person.


Why I chose TKD:
You learn in Taekwondo to never give up.  When something gets tough, you learn to keep going at it until you finish it.  You also gain more respect for others, patience, confidence, self control, and that’s just the beginning.  I believe it is not good to be mentally strong but physically weak, or vice versa.  Taekwondo has the perfect balance.  Even when one stops Taekwondo, the things they learn from it carry on with them for the rest of their life.


Why I chose W. Kim TKD to train:
W. Kim Taekwondo has always been such a big part of my life.  When I moved to Korea and back, I had a chance to look at a different variety of Taekwondo schools.  What I like about W. Kim more than the rest of the other schools is the environment we have.  Everybody is a family, and nobody is left behind, even the new students.  When someone is having trouble with something, they know the entire W. Kim family has their back, always encouraging them and helping them be their best.  Everybody is caring, supportive, and even welcoming to new members.  It is like having a second family.


Why I chose W. Kim TKD to instruct at:
I have been with W. Kim Taekwondo for most of my life.  I love the environment, I love Taekwondo, and I really wanted to make a positive influence on peoples’ lives (even if they didn’t know it).  It was just natural that I chose W. Kim to instruct.
