I practiced Taekwondo for 12 years and competed at the junior state level for my division multiple times. I learned the importance of self-discipline and mental toughness that I apply to all aspects of life to this day.
When I stepped up to the plate to become a coach, I knew I had to become an appropriate role model. I couldn't just talk the talk. I had to double down on knowing that someone may always be watching and that I will live every moment with integrity in response. It is easy to cut corners when you're tired or think no one is around, but these are the moments that define us, and how we do anything, is how we do everything.
Even though this can be applied to any group of athletes, my favorite people to coach are those that have never worked out or stepped foot into a gym before. Generally, I love showing people that they are so much more capable than what they previously believed they could do. When I see that moment in any athlete, it makes being a community leader so worth it.
