Steph Boivin got me the sweetest gift! She contacted over 30 people from around the world that mean so much to me. She made a photo album with letters from all 30 people. I cried with every letter.

Always Learning and Loving It!

Since I’ve changed my eating habits I can’t believe how much better I feel.  Eating smaller meals every 3 hours really helps keep my energy up through the long training hours.  It’s so much work with all the food preparation and packing a little cooler every day before I leave the house but at least […]


A New Way of Eating!

I had a very productive meeting with fitness coach/nutritional coach and friend Wayne Thompson  from Core Plus Fitness right after school about my nutritional needs for the next nine months.

Mr. LeGrow and Ms. Maduk’s Coloured Belt Seminar 2012

Yesterday, Mr. LeGrow and I gave a 5 hour pattern seminar to cover all the color belt patterns. We wanted to share our passion for patterns and give students and opportunity to review and improve their patterns in more detail. It’s good to have two instructors since we both have different personalities and wanted different things emphasized.  This way we can […]


It Takes Courage – This is Just the Beginning

Yesterday,  I went and watched some of Ms. Trigger’s and Ms. Villeneuve’s students test for their black belts and 2nd Degrees. This day was especially exciting for me because Cameron Clarke was one of those students. I have known Cameron and his family for years now and I remember the first day I met Cam and […]


Invited Back to Sherway Sports

I’m so lucky that I get opportunities to share my love for Taekwon-do with other kids.  Tonight I was invited back to teach a few basic kicking and punching fundamentals to a very special group of girls.  It definitely wasn’t the typical TKD class at all but these girls were just so excited to have the freedom to […]
