“My parents signed me up when I was around the age of 4 and they wanted me to stay healthy and active. My favourite thing about taekwondo was that everyone was very encouraging, helpful and it I always had a great time when I went to the club! I have achieved 4 black belts, a stronger core, leadership, empathy, and courage. I think someone should join because when you first come you feel right at home, everyone is very encouraging, very helpful, and lots of fun. Cobourg taekwondo was like another family to me, and Master Jonathan Field has really been there for me.” Charlotte
