Thoughts about the ECTC (INCTL) or Taekwondo in general:

My parents put me in Taekwondo when I was six years old hoping it would encourage me to speak up more in school. They never imagined the sport to stay with me this long and provide me the many opportunities it has. Taekwondo has enabled me to travel to various places and meet many new people I am very grateful for. Since my training has begun with the University if Michigan I feel as though all of my previous years of training are starting to come together with the help and suppot of my peers. It is a very welcoming environment and has enabled me to add many new people to my Taekwondo Family. I believe the ECTC only supports this type of environment with the way school's can recieve points based on their teams effort. One becomes aware that they can not only strive to improve themselves but their teammates as well.
