"Hi my name is Gabriel Godoy, I started taekwondo at the age of 6 but didn’t arrive to MYT until I was 10 when my auntie was looking to switch us taekwondo schools. I had thought this was going to be a temporary sport, however when I moved to MYT I quickly began to compete in sparring and in 2014 I medaled at my first nationals. My confidence was really low when I first started, but as I grew and we began to compete and travel more I started knowing the potential I had and how far I could take my name as well as our team’s name. Through taekwondo I started overcoming my personal fears and obstacles, gained confidence when it came to talking or doing something in front of people. My goal is to help every student find their confidence and strengths by pushing them to be better in and out of the dojang through the 5 tenets of taekwondo: Courtesy, Integrity, perseverance, self-control & indomitable spirit."
