Instructor Nathan Yoo began learning Taekwondo at age 3, and is currently a 4th Dan Black Belt. Nathan began competing in National and International tournaments from the age 5. Since then this has included the winning of multiple categories in the US and more recently, winning categories in the 2015 World Youth Taekwondo Championships in South Korea. Furthermore, Nathan’s ability as an instructor has grown throughout his eight years of teaching experience specialising in the growth of younger individuals.
Yet more importantly in life away from the competitive arena, Taekwondo has helped Nathan develop as a mature individual. Taekwondo has provided many essential cognitive skills including focus, confidence, responsibility and respect in everyday life. Nathan believes that the personal benefits Taekwondo nurtures have enabled him to communicate and think better as an individual.
Reflecting back on his life Nathan cannot see how a life without Taekwondo would have gotten him to where he is now. Whether starting Taekwondo early in life or beginning later, he would say that it is never too late to commence Taekwondo.
