Quotable Tashi Sherpa: "To me Taekwondo is a lifestyle. I've been doing Taekwondo for the past 13 years with Master Suh. I've enjoyed training and competing with my team. Taekwondo has changed my life and I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for Taekwondo and my mentor Master Suh who has taught me not only to be a champion in the ring but most importantly, a champion in life. Also, without the support of my parents and my family, I would not be able to pursue my dream as a martial artist and a Taekwondo fighter. I'm thankful of all the support that I have gotten, which has facilitated my continuing success in the ring and outside of it."
