National Achievements:


 Favourite pattern and why:

My favourite pattern is pattern 9. I love pattern 9 because of all the turns in the pattern. Pattern 9 is a very strong pattern which I love doing. Although pattern 9 consists of a cartwheel (which I can not do but working on for worlds) it’s still my favourite pattern. 

What are you looking forward to most in Korea?
I am really looking forward to meeting heaps of new people and getting to know the people in my team more. I love new experiences and I’m sure this will be one of the best I have had. I am also really looking forward to competing and seeing the best in the world compete. 

Why Haidong Gumdo?
I had been doing Taekwondo for 5 years prior to starting Haidong Gumdo. My dad started Haidong Gumdo a year before I did and it looked really good so I thought I would give it a  try. I love Gumdo and it is a really interesting and fun martial art. Every time I tell someone about it they have no idea what it is and I love that. I love doing something that’s so great and unique.

Other Martial Arts achievements:
I have been doing Taekwondo for 8 years now and I am training for my 3rd dan which I can go for in June this year. I am also an Assistant Instructor for my kids class on a Thursday night which I enjoy very much. Next year will be a big year for me as I will be grading for my 3rd Dan, doing my instructor course and completing year 12.

What is your spiritual animal?
I hope it’s a Tiger! I love Tigers. 

Favourite album
I’m going to have to say Taylor Swift, 1989. I love Taylor Swift!!

What’s your packing style – last minute or a month before:
I love travelling and I love packing suitcases (don’t know why). I pack my suitcase as early as I can so at least a week before and before that I make a list.
