More about Michael:
Besides TKD, my other athletic interests include BJJ, wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, snowboarding, and golfing. In addition to my pursuit of a Biology degree, I'm also working on a minor in music technology, which helps satisfy my interests in writing, recording, and playing music. At Penn State I work in a vascular aging and exercise physiology lab as a research assistant and at the university natatorium as a lifeguard. After earning my B.S. in Biology, I hope to pursue a degree in medicine.
Thoughts about the ECTC (INCTL) or Taekwondo in general:
Taekwondo has been a large part of my life for as long as I can remember. The discipline and attitude I've acquired from a Taekwondo upbringing have led to success in multiple areas of my life. In college, the ECTC has provided an excellent outlet for my team and I to continue our passion for Taekwondo through spirited competition and learning from fellow collegiate Taekwondo programs.
