“I was new in Cobourg at the beginning of September 2010, as fan of Taekwondo, the first thing for me was to find a taekwondo club in the city. With some research I found Cobourg Taekwondo. As soon as I started training with Master Jonathan I saw the great potential. He is personable and professional. He encourages his students by teaching them the great tenets of Taekwondo which are: Integrity, Perseverance, Courtesy, Self-control and Indomitable Spirit. Even after class, we can benefit with his teaching through his blog and Facebook page. A little while after I started training with Master Jonathan I had chance to earn my 3rd Kukkiwon Black Belt Dan. That was a great achievement that I could be proud of. In addition I am now preparing for my 4th Kwan style Dan grading.For me, it is the right place that everyone who wants to learn Taekwondo and to “Become a Champion of Life”.” Youssoufou
