John McCrae Secondary School Leadership Camp

Being the Camp Coordinator with Pujan Thakrar has been one of the most satisfying and rewarding school experiences.  Every year John  McCrae Secondary School holds a 2.5 day Leadership Camp and it’s organized by two selected grade 11 and 12 students. The camp allows 65 students (grades 9-12) to attend and there is an application process since there is such […]

Awesome 3 Hour Sparring Training Today

As TKD Nationals are quickly approaching next month I really want to step up my sparring training.  I’ve been so busy preparing the Leadership Camp but now I can dedicate all my time to Taekwon-Do and Track since I also want to qualify for OFSAA. Today I trained with a great group of black belts and […]

Even though my training has been going extremely well I have to admit, I was pretty nervous because it has been a while since I’ve competed. As soon as I walked into the big room, saw the mats, the flags and all the […]
