At the young age of 3 years old, Leonardo expressed an interest in martial arts. He was enrolled in the kickstart program at Chosun TaeKwonDo Academy in 2014 and learned the foundations and principles of TaeKwonDo through the tutelage of Master Pamela Pyke. As his teachings progressed, Leonardo advanced to the youth training program where he furthered his education in the various forms and tenets of TaeKwonDo. Through his practice of TaeKwonDo, Leonardo learned the Five Tenets of TaeKwonDo: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit. Leonardo began private lessons with Dylan Parkinson to practice and improve his form and proficiency. He continues to attend Chosun TaeKwonDo Academy and is expanding his understanding of TaeKwonDo philosophy and technique. Outside TaeKwonDo, Leonardo greatly enjoys mathematics and is an avid soccer player. He continues to apply the lessons he is learning from martial arts in these aspects of his life, which has given him the confidence to face challenges head on and never give up.
