Smile Hello Everyone, I'm New!

Hello,

My name is Nicole, I'm from Texas and I'm 32 years old. I joined this forum because I was searching a former instructor and came across his name in some threads posted here. I couldn't wait to join the discussions.

I began taking Tae Kwon Do when I was in the 7th grade in the small town of Trinity, Texas. My dojo also offered some Aikido techniques. My instructor was Master James Fields, a personal hero of mine to this day. He was an outstanding teacher, man, father, role model, and person in general. His leadership, and the support of my entire dojo definately impacted and changed my life in ways I still feel today.

I continued lessons until the end of 10th grade (15 or 16 years old) when boys, friends and a job became more important to me. I reached the level of red belt.

I wish I had never quit, and am planning on joining a local dojo now, to continue, or start over, my journey in Martial Arts. I'm very excited, but am also concerned because when I took Tae Kwon Do before, it was very fast paced and strenuous. I'm not quite in the shape I was as a teenager, but I look forward to the challenge and lasting rewards.

I noticed a member by the name of Richard had posted some messages about the Korean Karate Academy in Trinity and Master Fields. If you read this Richard, get in touch with me. I think I remember doing some demonstrations with you.

Nicole (Nikki)
