·         Tae Kwon Do experience:  First began taking martial arts in Queens, New York city.  At the age of 17, right after graduating high school, she became interested in Tae Kwon Do, and joined her first do jang.   She trained four to five times a week for about a year and half until she moved to Charlotte.  Shortly after moving, she found Master Grady’s Eagle Tae Kwon Do Academy.  This is where she continues to practice “and learned to become a communicator”.

In Janeth’s own words:

“Teaching has helped me turn my life around.   Growing up in New York City was tough; somehow I always got myself in trouble .  Becoming involved in teaching in a nearby after school martial arts program helped keep me off the streets .  I began setting goals for myself and didn’t give in easily to peer pressure.   I became more of a leader.

“As I improved my physical fitness, Tae Kwon Do also helped my self esteem and confidence.   I found myself more outgoing in new areas.   I had a lot of trouble with public speaking -  my face would turn red, and my voice would quiver.  It took years, but now I am able to speak confidently in front of students of all ages and even strangers without being nervous.  I still don’t like being in the spot light, but I have come a long way.

“Being able to teach Tae kwon do today is a very rewarding career.  As years go by, I notice improvement in my technique and self discipline.  Helping others improve themselves helps me with my patience which is something I never had before.   One thing I’ve learned from being an instructor in this academy is that no two students are alike.   Every time a new student walks into our dojang, I grow as a communicator.  Developing new ways of teaching different types of people keeps my job interesting and exciting.”
