Marriage Through Taekwon-Do

I’ve said it so many times before but Taekwon-Do is NOT just a sport but it truly is a way of life.  Last weekend one of my best friends, Brigitte Jobin (now Brigitte Morris) married a taekwon-do Instructor from California.  They met at a TKD seminar in Florida two years ago and they knew they were meant to be together.  It’s very common for this to happen since when you study TKD it is also sharing the same values and passion for the art. Not only do we train together we socialize together.  It’s like an extended family. The bonds are very strong.  Even though Brigitte is 10 years older than me, we are extremely close and we are like sisters. When she asked me to be one of her bridesmaids I was extremely honoured.

 Now that Brigitte lives in California I know I’m going to miss her but we will always stay in touch and I can’t wait to see them both again at the next World Championships in Spain.

All these guests are TKD martial artists from all around the world – very inspiring

It’s ironic how two years ago at the last World Championships,  Mr. Morris is in several of my photos since he was coaching the USA team AGAINST me!  My Instructor Mr. LeGrow was also asked to be a groomsman since he was Brigitte’s instructor for almost 10 years. We didn’t even know Mr. Morris two years ago and yesterday Mr. LeGrow and I were walking down the isle in their wedding party. Amazing how much can change in a couple years.  At their wedding I met so many new TKD people and reunited with friends from Scotland, France, Singapore and a few different States in the USA.  Travelling to International competitions is so much more fun when you have all your friends to see again.  It really is a small world!  See you all again soon 🙂
