Andrew is now a 4th Dan black belt, has undertaken a SEND qualification and is also coaching Taekwondo students of all ages and abilities. Andrew always checks with medical professionals before starting or restarting a sport, but he will not let his condition stop him from doing something he enjoys. Along with his family, he often fundraises and takes part in campaigning activities to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding Epilepsy. Andrew would recommend practicing Taekwondo to everyone and encourages people to not let disabilities, either visible or invisible, stop them taking part in activities which they enjoy.
