How many years have you been training in the martial arts? 

I began training in late August 2014 at nearly 68 years old and am now approaching 7 years with Millennium/Hero (and 75 years old).


Why did you begin martial arts training? Why do you continue to train?

I wanted to learn Tai Chi and improve my left side strength to assist with my equestrian sport.  I’ve continued in Tae Kwon Do because I found it helped meet my original goal, but mostly because I found a way of life.  I could grow personally and I found a second family.  And it keeps me healthy and challenged.


What is a life lesson that martial arts has taught you?

Among  the life lessons I’ve gained from martial arts is if we embrace and follow  the tenets of TKD, we will have a much happier and successful  life.  Also, we are able to do much more than we thought we could.  I’ve learned that my best effort is enough and I can continue to try to improve my “best”.


What are some of your hobbies, sports, or other activities that you enjoy outside of martial arts?

Since I lost my horse I no longer ride, but still love horses. I am an avid crossword and puzzle nut. I read daily  (and probably too long) for pleasure.  I enjoy hiking or just walking with my dogs.  I’m a huge fan of the Chiefs and Royals.
