2014 Personal Highlights

I definitely had more ups and downs than normal during 2014 but I guess its all part of growing up. Every Christmas I review my blog and make a quick recap of the year and I always feel extremely grateful for the things that I’ve been able to accomplish (despite the challenges) and the experiences I’ve had.  It also […]

Maduk Gives 3 Hour Sparring Seminar

While I was in Halifax at MacKenzie TKD for the week I also gave a three hour sparring seminar.  This was another dream come true for me.  I would love to spend a few years travelling the world learning from Masters and Grandmasters and then sharing what I’ve learned. I’ve been given so much knowledge from my Instructor Mr. LeGrow while he […]
