Sean's Story

I had wanted to take martial arts training when I was teenager back in high school. I made a couple of attempts as a younger man. One thing or another seemed to get in the way. So here it is some 40 years later and in my late 50's, I decided to pursue that ambition and joined Master Rim's Taekwondo in Brooklin. 

Today under his and his son's instruction and guidance, I have fulfilled that life long ambition and reached the goal of obtaining my Black Belt.

But it is not just about the belt. The training, discipline and philosophy has been as important if not more so than developing the physical skills.

I have been a marathon runner, triathlete, Ironman, jumped out of airplanes, skied out of helicopters and dived on sunken shipwrecks. Studying TKD at Master Rimís has been more challenging and developed me more as a person than any of the other athletic endeavours I have undertaken.

Master Rim's teaching has sharpened my self confidence and focus, made me more respectful and less fearful. I can better protect myself and my family and as I age, that gives me comfort.

I am beginning to understand that what I have learned only scratches the surface and look forward to deepening my skill and understanding of Taekwondo at Master Rim's.
