For over 21 years, AJTKD has been helping children and youth overcome adversities and reach their full potential through Taekwondo. Our project was born within the community it was built for. As part of this community, we put our heart and soul in every action we take towards a greater change.
I was a 9-year-old troublesome child when I discovered Taekwondo and Master Jadir Figueira, who gave me a direction and changed my life forever. Now, as a teacher, I want to pass on to the young ones the values I have learnt so they can become great athletes and human beings.
