Matthew Godden
Dover TKD Instructor.
My current grade is IV Dan (Black Belt 4th Degree)

Why I started training ...
I started Taekwondo because me and my son wanted to do a martial art, so I done a lot of research into the different martial arts and I.T.F. Taekwondo in my opinion was by far the best one. I also wanted to keep fit and learn a self defence that could protect me and my family and Taekwondo ticked all the boxes.

Where and with whom I started ...
I started training in Hawkinge with my son Ryan, Mr Panteli was my instructor and from that first day I was hooked and started training at all the different locations and before i new it i was training 4 to 5 times a week and loving every minute and was determined to get my black belt.

My favourite moment so far in my training has been ...
I have had so many favourite moments me and my kids winning gold medals, getting to black belt 3rd dan and my daughter becoming a world champion the list could just go on and on. my students success in gradings and competitions! I just hope theres many more favourite moments to come in the future.

My very next goal in Taekwon-Do is ...
4th dan Black Belt

My future ambitions in Taekwon-Do are ...
My Taekwondo ambitions are that Tkdpower will expand and continue to be a great club without all the politics that many other clubs have!! Also I would like to see many of my students get to Black Belt and also start there own Taekwondo classes.

A little about me ...
I am the Dover and Saltwood instructor and get great pleasure from my students success!!
