Christine started training in Taekwon-Do in 1985 and gained her black belt in 1990.
Christine has cross trained in Aikido and Kyokushinkai Karate whilst at Victoria University, NZ, from 1988 - 1992.
And again in Aikido at Oxford University, England, from 1996 - 1997.
A highlight of being a student of martial arts is to be able to train with many masters, instructors and friends from around the world.
Christine moved to Tauranga in 2006 and started the Hwa Rang Taekwon-Do Academy.
Christine says that the learnings and challenges from taking up Taekwon-do is so vast that there really is something special for everyone. It is more than a hobby or sport but a way of life that instills confidence, a healthier lifestyle and successes supported by a worldwide Taekwon-Do fraternity.
