TAEKWON-DO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2019 IN BRAZIL

TAEKWON-DO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2019 IN BRAZIL

Personal message

My name is Francois Grove and I am 24 years old. I am a 4th Dan in Taekwon-Do and also studying for my BComm Supply Chain and Operations.  
I currently live with my parents and younger brother in Kempton Park.  I have started with Taekwon-Do at the age of 8 years.  The one thing that Taekwon-Do taught me is to be disciplined and to have integrity and persevere throughout life.

I have been selected by ACE Taekwon-Do for the South African team to compete at the World Championships in Brazil in August 2019.  Any raised funds will go towards my trip to Brazil. Hopefully I will be able to cover my flights, accommodation and all clothing and gear needed for this competition.  It is a great honor to be part of the ACE Taekwon-Do foundation and to be able to represent South Africa and the foundation at this World Championship.  It has always been a dream to go and compete at the World Championship.

The championship is from the 9 to the 11th of August 2019 and the expenses are as follows:

Airfare R14000, Accommodation and meals R10000,
Clothing and gear R3000.

Since I have been doing this sport from the age of 8 years, I have learned to be disciplined and to persevere.  When I started with Taekwon-Do it was a hobby or a sport where I could learn some self defence but soon realised that his is a way of life and that is exactly what it became...my way of life. I want to help other students to also live their life this way.  I want to encourage the younger children to work hard and to achieve their goals and dreams. This is a form of art and not just a sport.
