About your mentor
James Gott
Dragonfire Taekwondo
I started Taekwondo with my son not knowing what we were letting ourselves in for (I thought it was a Judo class!) we immediately fell in love with TKD and after much sweat, hard work, perseverance and a few tears we have both attained our first and second Dan black belts. I am delighted to now teach at the club I started at. I still study under my instructor and a 7th Dan champion at our regional centre in Horley. I am passionate about passing on my knowledge to the next generation, I strongly believe that to preserve and build on the legacy of Taekwondo for the future is an privilege and honour. You never forget your first martial arts instructor. I remember mine with fondness from my teenage years learning Karate. During my time as a forensic specialist and manager at the Metropolitan police forensics lab I have developed and learned many mentoring and leadership skills that assist and guide me as a martial arts instructor. The tenants of Taekwondo are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit. These are the soul of Taekwondo and as it happens the soul of my career.
