Why Jeanette loves Taekwondo
It's now in my core and shapes my thoughts and processes every day. I believe this has reflected positively on my family and extended taekwondo family. Taekwondo has been my vehicle to health and success. It keeps me focused and energised. It brings out the best in me and keeps me in touch with peoples’ needs and desires.
