 Testomony
 
My name is Lynnette Alicia Love. I have had a passion for Taekwondo for over 30 years. As a student and competitor I know the benefits of concentration, self respect and confidence that I have developed since walking into my first dojang with my instructor Master Hwa Chong and my development as a athlete with my Olympic coach Grand Master Sang Chul Lee.
 
 
 
I developed the ability to believe I can do anything I desire. Through this strength I realized many of my own dreams as a Gold and Bronze Medalist in the 1988 and 1992 Olympics. While these are a few victories, living a victorious life is a daily decision. At every match I knew “If I can make you believe I am “King Kong” then I have won the match”. Knowing no battle is ever won on the mat but in the mental and physical preperation in the years, months and days preceeding it. Training with a champion isn't the key to being one, training like on is  However, martial arts is so much more.
