“I appreciate that our university has this traditional ITF-style Taekwondo club, and I can learn and then give back. We have great instructors and solid training, which could be a double-edged sword. Not many students can insist on; however, their bodies and minds would be refined if they do. That’s why this style can be practical in real fighting, and that’s why we love Taekwondo.”

Treasurer: Danielle Yingst

Seeing the camaraderie and dedication among the other members is always an added bonus and a great source of inspiration.”
