Girls Only Multi-Sport Program

Last night I had the incredible opportunity to go and spend some time with a big group of girls in downtown Ottawa.   My past soccer coach Audra runs a ‘Girls Only Multi-Sport Program’.  She asked me to come in and teach her girls some Taekwon-do and talk about my World Championship experience. Of course I was really excited […]


Qualified for Brockville

Only the top 5 […]

I was also excited that so many different Masters were going to be there as well as my senior instructors from all over Ontario, Quebec, California, New York and Connecticut.  My original instructor […]

Win This Fight – Canadian Cancer Society

For once I’m not talking about winning a fight in a sparring ring.   I’m talking about the fight against Cancer! The Canadian Cancer Society had a contest for students to write a new Theme Song  for 2012.  As soon as Mr. Stoodley  (my guitar teacher) told me about the contest I immediately wanted to participate and I […]
