Having a strong mindset and knowing that they have a loyal team and family behind them is what keeps these talented athletes growing.

"Taekwondo may be an individual sport, but the effort definitely is not. So when I get a chance to stand on the podium, the whole team stands up with me."
“Losing is but an obstacle, and winning is never a destination”
“While ambition is imperative for success; ambition is also man’s greatest inherent flaw. Moderation is imperative for contentment.”
"In Taekwondo, the journey is just as important as the destination. The personal growth and friendships made through training are far more gratifying than any medal."
"When I compete, I only think of myself so I am always calm and focused on the things I'm doing.
Don't be sad if you lose, next time you can learn from your mistakes and do better or even win.”
