More about Jonathan:

I started Taekwondo when I was little because I wanted to be a power ranger. I can sometimes act a little goofy. I like to have fun and I like to make people laugh. Probably, my biggest weakness would be mashed potatoes.

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

I started Taekwondo when I was seven years old. I began competing when I was eight and continued competing into the National Qualifiers and Junior Olympics at thirteen. When I transferred to Cortland, I wanted to join a league that could help me prepare for competitions and allow me to meet new people. I can honestly say that the ECTC has gone above and beyond what I ever pictured. The competitions are great and something can always be learned from competing. In addition, individuals in the league are fantastic. You meet other competitors and form friendships that go beyond competitions. I think it is rare to find a league that provides opportunities for its members to grow mentally, physically, and spiritually. The ECTC does all of these things above and beyond.
