Christie Adam is a coach and student. My Taekwondo journey started when I was eleven years old. I was very sceptical as I had no knowledge about Taekwondo. However, nine years later I’m still at Raw and better than ever. I got offered an amazing opportunity to become a coach at Raw when I turned 16 and also this was when I achieved my black belt (first Dan). Becoming a coach at Raw was one of my best decisions that I have made as it helped my confidence grow more and more with each training session. It was also a dream of mine to work with young people and Raw made that dream possible for me. My Raw journey so far has been extraordinary. Raw has given me endless opportunities to travel. I have attended competitions in Manchester, Dublin and Copenhagen. I am proud of myself for working hard, so I was able to accomplish what I have today my Second Dan. No matter how difficult or how you don’t want to attend class, push through you will achieve amazing things. It’s all about maximum effort.
