Cherie Durgin

In her own words…

I am a proud mother of 3 boys who I have frequently watched train at the dojang for many years. Witnessing them earning their black belts filled me with pride and inspiration. I decided to join them in training, and it was a great feeling receiving my black belt with my boys supporting me. Taekwondo has changed my life as it has taught me many useful principles that I am able to use inside and outside of the dojang. As a Korean-American, practicing taekwondo allows me to get in touch with my culture and history. Besides taekwondo, I enjoy running, playing the piano, playing tennis, and researching teaching practices to enhance my career as a Reading Specialist.
