Get to Know Our Instructors.


In this edition we ask Master Robert Haskins a few questions.


Q: Where is your Centre.
A: Belgian Gardens in Townsville


Q: What is your rank.
A: 4th dan Black Belt


Q: What is your favourite technique.
A: Any technique that is well executed is my favourite technique at that time.  Taekwondo is such a multifaceted art and has so many excellent techniques it's genuinely hard to choose!


Q: What do you do for a living.
A: I am a Rep for a major pharmaceutical company.


Q: What is your favourite TV show.
A: Burn Notice


Q: What do you do in your spare time.
A: I like to read in my spare time, and keep up to speed with medical and pharmaceutical research.


Q: Do you have a favourite quote.
A: Know thyself, and nothing in excess.  From the Delphic maxims  inscribed in the pronaos (forecourt) of the Temple of Apollo at Delph.  (I think my other favourite quote would be from GM Les.... "Leave me right out of that!")


Q: What type of music do you like.
A: A wide range from metal to traditional Celtic.  It's got to have a lively beat and some bass.


Q: What other sports do you follow and do you have a favourite team.
A: While I'm not big on most sports, and would rather see the money spent on research, I do like the occasional Origin Game.    Footy at its highest level. 



Thanks Master Rob



Enjoy your Training everyone....
