TRU Profile 43 // Chris Whitaker. Chris is 24 years old and a red belt at TRU. As a teacher assistant at the elementary school level, he often saw Master Terranova and Master Cadiente coming into schools and serving the students and staff. It’s because of this that he began to give TRU a try! He loves working with the super kids at TRU. As an adult training in taekwondo, he has noticed how it’s “helped me push myself, have goals, as well as self discipline”. Other than that, the best thing about taekwondo in Chris’s opinion is “meeting the most wonderful woman in the world, Ms. Katie”.
