Kendall-Leigh Beal

Kendall-Leigh Beal was born and raised in Prince Rupert BC. She has studied the martial art of Taekwondo since 1995 under the instruction of Master Paul Bozman of Prince Rupert Champion Taekwondo. She has studied and teaches under the guidelines of the World Taekwondo Federation, the globally recognized form for Taekwondo in the Olympic Games.

She  was put in Taekwondo when she was just 6 years old. Her parents thought that as a shy, uncoordinated child  it would help with her self-confidence and self esteem, with the added bonus of their young daughter learning self-defense early on.  She developed lifelong friendships  with her classmates, developed a healthy level of self-esteem and learned the value of good sportsmanship through attending tournaments, and  various summer martial arts  boot camps.  Her classmates and instructors became like a second family to her, and wouldn’t trade her experiences for the world.  She has taken the values placed on the life skills she has learned and loves that she gets to share them with her own students.

Beal received her black belt in May 2002, and is now recognized by the World Taekwondo Federation as a third degree black belt as of July 2013.  She has taught for many years and became a head instructor in 2005. Her students run from all ages, fitness levels and belt ranks.

Beal was thrilled when she had the opportunity to bring her beloved martial art to the South Okanagan area in 2012.  She welcomed the chance to introduce the children and adults of this community to Outlast Taekwondo.  It is very important to her that men and women in this area have the opportunity to learn practical, effective self-defense techniques while enjoying all the benefits of physical fitness that Taekwondo offers.  Her goal is to teach both the practical skills of self-defense, and the critical life skills of self-control and the respect for self and others.  Most importantly, she hopes to inspire confidence in the hearts of her students, and  provide  encouragement to reach their goals,  while giving them the skills to achieve excellence in every area of their lives.

Sanaz interweaves the insights and practices of spirituality to rejuvenate the body, mind and soul.
