TRU Profile 58 // Joe Gibson. Joe is a blue belt at our Country Club Location. He is a beard sporting, motorcycle loving, outdoorsman that loves training with his TRU family. He recently began taekwondo because he started taekwondo as a kid and never finished it. Now as an adult, “I’m here to finish what I started. You never should start something without finishing it.” He loves poomses and learning from Master Cadiente. Joe has noticed how taekwondo has helped him focus on tasks and jobs in every day life, at work and with projects.
We love catching actions shots of our adults as a reminder adults benefit taekwondo just as much as kids!
Here are a few pictures from the graduations in March!
TRU Profile 38 // Emily Walser. Emily started taekwondo about 5 years ago with her son. She is a second degree black belt. As an adult who trains, she has noticed how it has helped with her concentration, and become a more confident and calmer person in general. Her favorite part of training is poomse, specifically koryo. And her favorite part of helping with class is watching the students grow, “you are able to see them get better and evolve. And the hugs are the best!” Master Arguello has made a big impact on Emily’s taekwondo journey, and helping her continue when it seemed too hard. Taekwondo has helped Emily “believe in myself, believe in others, and encourage others along the way.”
