A Sweet Testimonial:
By Jacqueline Koay, Kathu, Thailand, parent of Gina, national champion, taught by GM Yeow.|
Many people have been asking me about the legendary Master Yeow, whom G began training with when she
was about 5 or 6. Here he is: "http://traditionaltaekwondo.net/master.htm". Best thing we ever did for G
(photo below: professional portrait after she won the national championships)."
"So off she trotted to Master Yeow's, three times a week for 15pounds a month. Best thing we ever did for her.
Master Yeow was tough on her "You have to be able to wear your black belt on the inside, Gina, before you can
wear it on the outside". Whenever she was late (because of her parents), 20 kids attacked her by order of
Master Yeow. And because she was always late (terrible parents!) she was attacked regularly, until by the
age of 8 or 9, she was the best fighter in the dojang and could hold her own against 20. The girls didn't
want to fight her, so she had to fight the boys. She often cried, but she never stopped going. Sometimes, her Dad and I cried too when we watched her climb those narrow stairs up to
the dojang and she was wiping away her tears with her sleeve."
"She beat everyone else in her category and age group to become the national champion. It was the sweetest
victory ever, because it was about mastery of the self. Master Yeow certainly shaped her character a lot.
A year ago, he came to Phuket to visit her, "You will be my first female GrandMaster, you will see" he
told her. "Go back to England and show them what you learned from me." Well, she certainly learned to be
strong on the inside. Her father taught her to be soft, and Master Yeow taught her to be strong,
and not to open your mouth unless you can carry your words."
