Tahlia Gowland Focused On Martial Art Excellence – A Teenagers Taekwondo Story


Tahlia Gowland as a Black Belt

Tahlia Gowland has been involved in Taekwondo Central for 7 years. The 14 year old is currently a 2nd Dan Black belt and is part of the Paragon Program being one of the students chasing that little bit more from there training.

Personally being Tahlias instructor over this time she has grown from a pint sized chatterbox (Ha Ha) to a an amazing teenager and great example of the effect Taekwondo Central can have on your mind & body regardless of age.

Her progress has been very noticeable with beautiful execution of techniques honed from years of training complimented by a strong focus on her own desire to achieve excellence in this art we all love.

Her happy personality and beautiful smile are always welcome at the club however don’t be misled. This girl kicks very hard and fast, the lure of thinking your safe disappears quickly after the first strike, its clear she practises her craft.

Tahlia has taken the time out to write a little bit about what Taekwondo has done for her and a little on her story. Take a minute out to look at it. Its a great read from someone who has practised Taekwondo for half her life.

Enjoy!

Master Justin Warren

Tahlia Gowland with mum Deanna CelebratingTahlia with mum Deanna after passing 1st Dan Black Belt

I’m Tahlia. I’m 14 and joined Taekwondo Central when I was 7. Throughout the years I have been apart of this amazing club, I have passed 17 belts and am currently onto my 2nd Dan Black Belt, grading for my 3rd Dan at the end of 2019. I joined the Paragon Program approximately 3 years ago and it has helped me improve my skills and technique incredibly.

Since I am a 2nd Dan Black Belt, I have participated in and passed two black belt grading’s in Perth.
When the grading for my 1st Dan Black Belt was approaching, I felt almost certain I wasn’t going to pass. I worked so hard for two months leading up to the grading, going to almost every lesson I could.

Tahlia Gowland Black Belt Pic

My week would consist of taekwondo on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. In the final days of preparation, my body ached, all the training had been making a huge impact on my body and the hours after training became extremely painful. However, I kept going (with much encouragement from my mum I might add), and the work paid off. Previously, I had wanted to quit after getting my black belt, but the feeling I had from finally passing was one I knew I would never feel anywhere else. I am so glad I’ve kept going this far and I definitely have no plans the leave anytime soon.


Tahlia Gowland as a Yellow Dragon

Tahlia passes her first Yellow Dragon belt

Taekwondo is a big part of my life and has brought me confidence, discipline and strength. I strongly believe that without taekwondo, I would be a very different person. The Paragon Program helped me improve my skill and technique for both of my black belt grading’s and is still helping me become better today. To be so young and to have achieved such feat is truly an honour.

Everyone at Taekwondo Central are just like family to me. I am extremely grateful for all the extra trainings and time that Master Justin, Head Instructor Ajana and Instructor John put in for me when I needed them. I think the true lesson here is to persevere even when you feel like quitting because hard work always brings a great reward.

What Is Taekwondo To Me – Luke Crane

Assistant Instructor Luke Crane with Remy - www.tkdcentral.com

What is Taekwondo to me?

By Taekwondo Central Assistant Instructor Luke Crane

In just two years, I have achieved with my training what takes most White Belts at least four. I have gone from just bumming around at home with no thought of EVER studying a martial art, to being an Assistant Instructor at my club. How did I do it and why? Because I’m a Father…

Taekwondo is so many things to me. It’s liberating. It’s keeping fit, staying positive, working towards goals you would have never thought achievable, and surpassing them!

Its strength to overcome your fears, to find the confidence that has always been inside you but never knew how to access or harness.

Taekwondo is exhilarating, it’s full of energy.

Taekwondo empowers you to bring out the best from within.

Taekwondo is respect, discipline, determination, courage, focus, self-awareness, self-defence and knowing how to take control over a potentially dangerous situation.

Most importantly, Taekwondo is fun, and Taekwondo has become a big part of my life.

Two years ago I would never have seen myself where I am today. I had no thoughts of even considering taking up martial arts.

But the reason I’m here now? Her name is Remy!

She’s a beautiful blue-eyed, red-headed, fiery young girl. She is wise beyond her years and she’s been doing Taekwondo with our club since she was 3-years-old.

She is my now 8-year-old daughter and she is my world.

Assistant Instructor Luke Crane with Daughter Remy - www.tkdcentral.com.

I enrolled Remy in Taekwondo 5 years ago at her mum’s suggestion – she had a friend whose daughter was also doing Taekwondo.

Back then I knew little of the sport, but I knew enough to realise this would be a great thing for Remy to participate in.

You see, Remy’s mum and I are no longer together and I could see there were some issues arising within Remy that I believed Taekwondo could help her with.

Self-confidence was a big issue. “I can’t Daddy, I can’t do it!”

So many times I’ve heard this same sentence. I’m sure all parents have.

It’s heart breaking when someone you love, truely believes they can’t do something. It’s like they’ve already given up.

Remy had difficulty focusing at times during her early training sessions. She had an eternal battle raging away inside as she tried to make sense of who she was in a life that involved moving from my house to her mum’s house, her mum’s house to my house and on and on.

It’s a cycle of confusion that can be very hard for any child, of any age, to understand.

Listening, or more accurately, her lack of listening is another issue that entwines its way into many of our battles.

It’s hard watching your child go through these emotions and hard to know how to deal with them the right way so you can help them understand what’s going on.

Taekwondo seemed like a great way to deal with some of these issues – A fun way, a positive way, a creative way.

Honestly, enrolling Remy into the Taekwondo Central Dragonflies Program has been the best decision I’ve ever made.

Taekwondo has really helped Remy out with all of the above mentioned and so much more.

As I sat on the sidelines over the weeks, months and then years, I witnessed changes occurring relatively quickly in Remy.

Also during this time I watched Instructors John and Ajana grow into amazing people and absolutely brilliant instructors.

I can see now why Master Justin chose them for the roles they have taken up within his club. Their attention to detail, the love and care everyone has put in is just amazing.

And finally I watched Master Justin teaching. Watched how he keeps his students interested and focused, seeing the passion that he has and puts into his work, his club.

All of this eventually made me think. This is great, maybe I’d give it a go if there was an adult class. Why not? What is there to lose?

Low and behold there was an Adult Class and even better it was a Family Class run in Australind.

At this stage Remy had passed all her belts in the Dragonflies Program and the Little Dragons Program, she was now starting out in to the Super Dragons Program.

I decided to ask the question, could she possibly join in with the Family Program if I was to start as well?

As, by now, Remy had a lot of experience it was decided that we could give it a try and we started training together.

Remy loved it! She loved it so much.

I remember Remy telling her mum on the phone one day when we first started doing Taekwondo together. She was so excited that her Dad was doing something she absolutely loves with her.

This was no longer Remy’s Taekwondo Journey, this was now OUR Taekwondo Journey and it’s been an amazing ride.

Remy is now currently working on her grading for Blue Belt 2nd Stripe, half way to Black Belt and she is only 8-years-old.

In only two years I have gone from a newbie White Belt, unsure of exactly what I was in for, to now wearing the Cho Dan Bo Belt, a probationary black belt.

In November/December I will travel to Perth to attempt my Black Belt grading.

Luke Crain doing the Crane Kick with Remy - www.tkdcentral.com

I am also an Assistant Instructor within our club helping everyone out as much as I possibly can. But how have I graded so quickly? How have I gone from White Belt to now training for a Black Belt – 4 years of training in just 2 years?

Well I’ve worked very hard, I have been disciplined, I have pushed myself, I have believed in myself, I have completed things I never thought possible.

I just recently participated in a two week yoga challenge where I found I could keep my balance on each leg for over an hour and 2 mins.

This was organised though The Mortal Mouse Taekwondo Blogger (who just happens to be another proud Taekwondo parent training with her son within our club). I suggest you look up the page on Facebook there are many amazing articles to read.

I have done every bonus summer holiday program since I started. In the last Program I was training not only for my Red Belt 2nd stripe but also my Red Belt 3rd stripe.

This was very intense training undergone in only one month instead of the usual semester it would have taken.

I have participated in our Paragon Program. Taekwondo has given me all that I need in order to be able to achieve all of this and I have never given up because I love Taekwondo and I love my Taekwondo family.

I love working alongside Instructors John and Ajana, Master Justin, my cousin Assistant Instructor Kelly, all of the members of our leadership team.

I love that they all love working alongside me, I love helping out every one of our students.

I love that Taekwondo has given me the strength, determination and the confidence to face anything that has attempted to pull me down.

The anxieties I have faced when I’ve felt like I’m at the lowest point I’ve been in my life. Taekwondo has given me a whole new lifestyle for the better and I love that.

But most of all, absolutely MOST of all, I love my daughter Remy.

I love that we share this amazing bond together, I love that we share our love of Taekwondo together, I absolutely love that Remy is the one who introduced me to Taekwondo, just as I had introduced her to Taekwondo years ago.

Remy has given me the power to never give up and Taekwondo has helped reinforce this power in a way I never thought possible.

I encourage any mother or father to have a go! Bring your children and create a bond that will never break.

Try it out. Its’ so beneficial, truly amazing. You will love it

Why I Love Martial Arts and Why all Women Should – Kelly Rowe

Why I Love Martial Arts and Why all Women Should

As Mums we often feel overwhelmed with pressure. We are bombarded with people sharing their lives over Social Media. Truth is, the majority of people only share their “highlights” reel and we can fall victim to the assumption that everyone else is winning at life so we need to push harder to keep up. It can leave us stressed, run down and feeling inadequate. Its taken me 9 years of being mum to finally realise how important it is to look after yourself, mentally and physically. How can you be the best mum, wife and woman if you’re not making yourself a priority as well. The saying goes “You can’t pour from an empty cup”, and its true isn’t it?

Have you ever found yourself in a stage of life where you feel overwhelmed, lost, depressed or anxious? These feelings can happen at any age, and I felt ALL of them at the age of 32. Stuck in a pattern of self destructive and negative behaviour I turned to martial arts. I have now been training for around 16 months and it has completely turned my life inside out and upside down, in the best way possible.

Martial arts are an incredibly ideal outlet for women of all ages and walks of life. The list I could write is almost endless. From the more obvious benefits like, increased fitness, strength, flexibility, coordination and reflexes. To the more subtle and unexpected ones like, an increase in confidence, calmness, the ability to deal with stress and daily challenges. The amazing feeling of empowerment that comes with the gaining of such skills is just second to none.

One of the other things that I did not expect was the strength of friendships I have found from joining a martial arts club. You’re training beside others who are also looking to attain similar results and goals and you may find you connect with people on a completely different level.

I initially started my martial arts journey when I was around 13. I really loathed my high school years as many I’m sure would relate. My one absolute joy I found at this time was Taekwondo training. I began training at the SWTA and my first Instructor was Odin Nel. I absolutely adored him. He was so encouraging and I felt like I had found something that I not only enjoyed and loved but I was actually good at. Every class left me walking away feeling strong and capable. I reached the level of Blue 2 stripe but unfortunately due to some health issues at the time, I gave training away.

Skip ahead 20 years, I found myself married with two young boys. I brought my eldest son to TKD Central to see if the training would help the coordination issues he was having at the time. He loved it, and soon my younger son joined in and they were both loving it. Almost as much as I loved watching them train. I quickly became jealous of the fun they were having kicking and punching targets, I started to remember the joys it had brought me as a teenager. However, I never dreamed of starting, no way did I have the guts to jump in again. So I kept sitting on the sidelines.

When the club announced they were offering a free self defence lesson to all the mums and a friend I thought, right! Time to have a go. I dragged my then mother in law along and I absolutely loved it. The encouragement Master Justin gave me was so uplifting. It was his kind words that gave me the push I needed to come to my first class.

Now I didn’t come easily, I paced back and forwards at home for a good hour before it was time. I was shaking, I was dizzy, I felt sick, I was THAT close to backing out. But I knew I had to go, I knew I had to do something to break the cycle of depression that was crushing me. When I walked in, there was about 10 young blackbelts all there, OMG, what was I doing here!!! I can admit I was backing up to the door when in walks Hyden and Audrey. Father and daughter, both white belts only just beginning their journey together. I could have hugged them both on the spot, thank goodness for

them, I may have just snuck out the door and never come back…….I really need to thank them for that!

I stayed, and I came back, again and again and again. Safe to say I am COMPLETELY and utterly hooked. Having something unique and different to focus on completely changed my life. Working towards each belt level, mastering the next kick and seeing myself gradually improve lifted me not only physically but mentally and emotionally. The training, the club, the people and my instructors. Ajana’s ability to command a class of close to 50 people with skill and confidence at the age of 20 amazes me! Johns kind and humble heart that see’s him swarming with kids is very endearing, and to Master Justin who is significantly responsible for changing my perspective of life and who reignited my desire to train, grow and learn again. The impact the club has had on my life is just incredible. I have met some amazing people who I will treasure for my whole life.

Learning the art and learning to teach with the hope of one day being able to pass on its benefits has become my life’s goal and something I’m truly passionate about. I encourage anyone out there to have a go, you should be eager to learn and remain curious your whole life, its what life is for! Soak up all that you can and you will be richer for it.
