My dream

by Jesse O'Connor
(SA Australia)

I started Taekwondo about 2 years ago when i was 12 yrs of age, I saw a video of Olympic sparring on you tube, I knew I've always wanted to do taekwondo,my dad did it in NewZealand and I just had to do it, from that point on I had a goal to make it to the olympics and win gold and i have been on the right track,

I've dedicated every bit of my body to achieve my dream ever since, I always looked up to Steven Lopez and Aaron Cook and even my instructors at my club,

I usually spend an hour or so training at home and beach, park etc at least 5 times a week and even more analyzing fights from world championships, I've turned to this page before all of my tournaments for training methods etc, its a big inspiration seeing stories from big players knowing that

I will be up there one day, I truly 100 percent believe it!!
I hope to hear peoples stories who are as passionate as me for taekwondo and some training methods etc
