Books with Strong Messages
As well as working hard to see everyone is training hard at ENDURANCE TAEKWONDO, Master Al writes children's picture books.
His first book My Hero is out NOW.
The story is about a young boy who is looking at a number of potential role models as he would like someone to look up to.
This fun, rhyming story takes a look at a number of characters from a Super Hero through to a number of people found in our communities.
The book has a strong message all the way through about trying to be the best version of yourself and always striving to do your best.
You can purchase a copy via his website or the next time you are at the club for Taekwondo!

Here are a few exerts from his books that are written to help children become the best they can be, overcome problems they may face and see that there is always someone else out there feeling and going through the same experiences and that it is OK to feel they way they do.
“Always do your best
And show up to every class
Even when you're feeling tired
As tiredness will never last”
Everyone faces hard times
It's scary to take that step
But every single champion felt
Exactly the same, I bet!
“A Black Belt never gives up
No matter what they face
Remember it's not a sprinter
That wins the longest race”
Don't be shy to get started
Or even to shed a tear
Just stand up to all of those feelings
And face up to all you fear
