Karen Atrill

I have loved Taekwon Do since I started training in 1979. Along the way I earned a 2nd dan in World Taekwon Do in 2004, and was an instructor for many years. I have three daughters and have taken long breaks from training over the years, but I always return. Since starting with Mrs Young at Hwa Rang I have seized every opportunity this wonderful club and organisation have offered. Competing and placing in the 2018 Oceanias and Sydney World Cup have been recent highlights for me. Outside of Taekwon-Do I am an early childhood teacher. I believe Taekwon Do taught and practised correctly is the perfect sport for fitness and well-being.
