I started training after my three boys took up the sport. I needed something to aim for, and it also meant that I could help them with something they enjoyed and it would give me a new hobby. Tae Kwon Do has helped me to develop in many ways, my confidence has grown a great deal and I am always aiming to achieve higher in my training. One of my greatest achievement's in training was that it helped me to loose weight and build up my fitness, I found myself being able to take part in various training activities that I thought were near impossible, as well as the fitness it improved my flexibility a great deal. It has taught me what I would need to defend myself in a dangerous situation, should the situation ever arise, I know how to safely and effectively defend myself from an attacker including men who are bigger and stronger than me.

My name is Courtney I started Taekwondo when my grandma brought a leaflet over to my house she said that joining the club would help my confidence because at the time I was very very shy. Since starting at North Halifax Taekwondo club I have been able to mingle with others and I have also been able to stick up for myself as I was being picked on. When I started at the club I was nervous and didn't know what to expect. The instructor, Neil Capper was very kind and he also doesnt throw you into the deep end unlike other clubs. The other students there are very easy to talk to and easy to approach. When I joined the club i didn't expect to get very far, however, for 2014 I have achieved the titles of; Northern England All Styles Martial Arts 2014 Champion and All of England All Styles Martial Arts 2014 Champion. I am currently a blue belt aiming for a red tag in 2015 I would recommend the club for any parents wanting to get there child to learn Self Defence or wanting their child to interact with others. It is a great opportunity and I am very proud to be a part of it.
