This caring way also came to show during the past eight months. Having had a bad back he could not only suggest other health professionals that could help me with my back problem, he also encouraged me to continue training at my own pace rather than sitting at home doing nothing. As I was able to increase the activities again Andy discouraged me from doing too much as not to damage my back any more, and if he considered I was doing too much he would "tell me off", or if there were occasions where one would have to do 20 press-ups I got away lightly.
Two days ago I passed my grading and gained my blue tag. Although it was my own willpower that got me this far- I couldn't have done it without Andy and his passion for what he does.
Inside the Dojang (training hall) Andy is my instructor to whom I have to show respect; but in everyday life this respect for him and what he does continues at the same level.
I would recommend Andy to anybody, whether it is for personal training, sports massage or Tae Kwon-Do.
Thank you, Andy, for being who you are and for becoming such a wonderful friend.
