Our adult student spotlight this week is on Season Jacques. Season is a fun and hardworking mother of three. She practices Tae Kwon Do with her husband and her oldest daughter. We love having Season in classes here because she gets along with all types of people and makes new folks feel at home. Additionally, her personal practice is rigorous and her movements are powerful. Thank you to Season for being a friend and inspiration here at Sun Soo!
Name: Season Jacques
Occupation: On call nurse at Carepartner’s hospice
Why you practice: Tae Kwon Do is a great workout and a wonderful activity that I share with my family
How long you’ve been practicing: 15 months
What you enjoy most about your practice so far: The camaderie with my Sun Soo “family,” the positivity the DoJang encompasses, watching all of the practitioners go beyond their potential, how helpful everyone is. Oh, and losing 35 lbs in the first 6 months!
Other hobbies/interests: Homeschooling, spending time with my family, gardening, tending our “zoo,” meeting new people, and camping
Something people at Tae Kwon Do probably don’t know about you: When I was 15, my parents bought a school bus and converted it into a “house” where we lived for 9 months.
Favorite Tae Kwon Do moment: My daughter doing her first board break with a flying sidekick, sparring with my husband, and never knowing when a crazy gorilla may attack!
