In my 30 plus year of teaching Tae Kwon Do I have had the privilege of teaching many different students.

On January 2014 I had the honor of meeting one very special student, his name is Louis Pampena.

Louis has Down syndrome and with that he has many challenges but one thing is for sure, he has this
” no quit” attitude that impress me. He is always asking questions about the techniques we learn (sometimes he even wants to tell me how to do the techniques).

His parents have mentioned that he has become very enthusiastic young man and that Tae Kwon Do has done wonders for him.

Recently he has achieved the rank of blue belt and with that a new set of challenges but with his drive, I am positive that he will conquer them all.

Great job Louis; you are an inspiration to all of us!
