Taekwondo gaining local toehold

Further to a story appearing in the February 15 issue of this paper, new Sooke resident Michelle Carpenter is moving ahead with her fitness/martial art training program.

“I have now nailed down details about the WTF Taekwondo program I will be running here in Sooke,” Carpenter related last week. 

“SEAPARC has kindly agreed to have it as one of their programs and here are the details: The first session starts May 9 and runs until June 22.

Monday and Wednesday sessions at Saseenos Elementary School will accommodate kids from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., adults from 7 to 8.

As Carpenter stated in the original February story, 

“We offer WTF Olympic style Taekwondo, personal training, sport specific training, police training, MIJO Boxfit (the discipline and benefits of fighting without actual combat), and fitness education.” Michelle has competed in WTF Taekwondo for many years, representing Team Canada at such events as the Commonwealth Championships, US Open, and World University Games.

“I am really excited to start the classes here in Sooke,” says Carpenter.

Still in her plans are a kids’ taekwondo camp to run from August 15-19 and a program called MIJO Boxfit to start in September.

As for her personal training services Michelle is continuing to take on new clients.
