Mackenzie McMaster was born June 12, 2007 in Naples, Florida. She started Tae Kwon Do when she was 5 years old and earned her Deputy Black Belt at the age of 9. Mackenzie started TKD because she thought it looked “cool” and because she thought it would teach her ninja skills. As she went up through the ranks, she realized it wasn’t just about learning cool tricks, but it was about becoming the kind of person she wanted to be.
Mackenzie feels TKD has taught her about life. She now realizes that both in TKD and in life, a person never really stops learning. She has learned that it takes hard work and perseverance to achieve your goals. Mackenzie is a straight A student and is also active in Girl Scouts.
