Trulittle Sports Hero (7-11)
Juwon Etti (Aged: 9 years)
Juwon started the sport of Karate when he was 5 years old in 2017. He is a member of Essex Tang Soo Do club. In 2018, Juwon achieved green belt in karate. To become a green belt in karate requires self-discipline testing of your physical strength and mental focus. Juwon has developed all these skills through his training and successfully earned a most improved certificate as proof of going to a higher rank.
At the age of 6, Juwon won 3rd place in the World Tang Soo Do Association National karate sparring tournament. Juwon has shared his love for the sport with his younger brother at age 3, and this has helped him get accepted into Karate club at age 4.
Whilst planning to go for world tournament in Italy in 2019 covid-19 struck and he had to quickly pivot to his coaching and training online. Now that sports are returning to normal, Juwon is looking forward to representing the club in forthcoming competitions this autumn. It is with great pride that I nominate Juwon for the sporting excellence category.
