Taekwondo Training History
I started training in Taekwondo in 1996 at the TAGB Kilmarnock under Tom Clark.  This was just after I met my wife-to-be who was already training in Taekwondo and as I always wanted to try a martial art I thought I would give it a go.

I trained with the TAGB for a few years and then left and joined the UKTC where I trained with Jim Nelson.   However, as luck would have it, I knew Scott McMillan from training at the TAGB and Scott was also training with Jim.  When Scott opened Phoenix Taekwondo as part of the TAGB, I continued training with the UKTC for a short while; however, in 2002 I left the UKTC and transferred back to the TAGB and joined Phoenix Taekwondo. Under Scott’s guidance, I was one of the first students to grade for Black Belt with Phoenix Taekwondo.

 In 2004, I became an assistant instructor and had the pleasure of being part of several demonstrations for Phoenix Taekwondo.

In 2012, I achieved my 2nd Degree Black belt and became a fully qualified instructor.  2013 will bring new challenges as I take on a new Kilmarnock Class as part of Phoenix Taekwondo.
