This is my first ever blog. So first let me introduce myself. My name is Master Jonathan Field. I am a 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo, 3rd Dan Kukkiwon Black Belt, and a 1st Dan in a freestyle Karate. I run and owm my own Taekwondo Academy, Cobourg Tae Kwon Do Ltd. We are located at 271 Spring Street Cobourg Ontario Canada. You can reach us at 905-373-0032, email@example.com, or at http://www.cobourgtaekwondo.ca. I have experience in Taekwondo, karate, Jiu Jitsu, MMA, Judo, self defense, weaponry, and competiton breaking. I have competed at local, regional, provincial, national, international, and world level competitions. I hold championships in all previous levels of competition except for a world championship which is my goal.
My Master Instrucotrs who are my teachers are two martial arts hall of famers. Grandmaster Veronica DeSantos (7th Dan in Taekwondo, and 4th Dan in Karate), and Grandmaster John Dube(7th Dan in Taekwondo). Both of these grandmasters are very knowledgable of many different types of martial arts stlyes and teaching styles and methods. I am blessed that they are my instructors. They both inspire me to be a better martial artist, a better instructor, but most importantly a better person. Isn’t that one of the top reasons to be studying martial arts in the first place?!
At my school, I have three other main structors at the academy. I am very blessed to have them training under me and to have them work along side of myself in a mutual goal to improve the quality of life our students have. Master Joyce Farrell is a 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo and teaches two to three times a week and helps out with belt gradings, and special events and seminars. SHe is one of the reaons why the academy is so successful. Master gayle Richards holds a 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo as well as a 2nd Dan Kukkiwon Black Belt. Master Richards teaches 2 times a week and helps out with special events and seminars and is a Team Wolverine member and is another reason why the academy is a success. Sir Richard Bernier has a 3rd Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo and also holds a 2nd Dan Kukkiwon Black Belt. May I say another reason why we rock! I would also like to mention Charlotte Kerr who holds a 2nd Poom Black Belt in Taekwondo and Mikaela Lavoy who has a Red Belt in Taekwondo. These two girls help out with Lil’ Dragon classes are very special to me as well. I also would like to say that I am very proud of my students and all the hard work they go through for self betterment. (Please note belt ranks are subject to change as we all get ready for various gradings coming up)
So now that the intros are done with, what is this blog going to be about. Well I will tell ya. My blogs are going to be about various aspects of martial arts training, teaching, and business. It will also be about my personal and professional experiences in my journey in martial arts. I may also write the odd blog about recent UFC fights and wrestling matches from the WWE. So I hope you will enjoy what I have to say and feel free to comment on my blogs but please no offensive language, rude comments, or anything along that line. everyone is entitled to their own opinion providing they have an educated opinion on the subject.
Bye for now, and yours in the journey to self improvement.
Master Jonathan Field
