Kevin is a university student from Belfast, Ireland. After trying Gaelic football and hurling Kevin realised that sports using balls weren’t for him and moved on to boxing! From there Kevin trained in several martial arts until joining Taekwondo at university. When asked what he loves about the sport, he notes how satisfying it is to rest your foot on your opponent’s face (!) Kevin also enjoys teaching juniors kickboxing in local community clubs and feels that every man, woman and child should have the chance to learn martial arts. Kevin was first elected to the board in 2015 and holds the role of Students’ Officer.
