CURRENT RANK: Red
AWARDS: Best of Testing 4/4/16
My name is Cole Tippery. I am 9 years old, and am in the 4th grade at Everett Dirksen Elementary School. I have been participating in martial arts since September 2015, and am currently a red belt. My favorite kick is the Dragon Kick. I attend classes with my mom and my sister, Jessica.
When I am not at martial arts classes, you can find me practicing piano, which I have been doing since August 2017. I also take swimming lessons, and have recently rejoined the Schaumburg Children’s Choir. I attend Willow Creek Community Church, and am involved in the AWANA program. I also serve there in the Special Friends ministry every other week, helping children who have special needs. I enjoy collecting Pokemon and Sports Cards, and like to watch college and professional football and basketball games. I like to watch live performances too. The last show that I saw with my family was School of Rock, and it was awesome!
I enjoy spending time with my family, which consists of my mom, dad and sister (6). I also have a brother (27) and a niece who is 18 months old, so that makes me an uncle. I have a 9 year old yellow lab named Chance and a one year old Shih Tzu/Maltese mix named Rosie.
Through Grandmaster Kim and Master Kristi’s guidance, I have learned discipline and focus, and I have become mentally and physically stronger.
