Cho Dan Bo Ashley Johnsen (Black Belt Candidate)
My name is Ashley Johnsen and I just recently became a Cho Dan. My sister, Emily & I have been a part of Tang Soo Do for seven years. I can proudly say that I am who I am because of Tang Soo Do. I have experienced so many amazing things throughout the years I’ve been here. I want to thank my instructors, Master Finger and Mr. Rolling and all of the black belts for their support and encouragement through this whole journey. They have all stood by my side through all of this. I know I wouldn’t be in this position without them. Within these last couple of years, I have watched my cousin, Madison, and all the other gups grow, learn, and achieve. I will always be proud of them for getting as far as they have gotten and hope to watch them reach their goals.
I plan to continue to work hard & learn even more than I already have and test for black belt in the near future. I know that I will reach this with the love and support of my Tang Soo Do family.
