Mathew Beckstrand is currently a First Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. He has been learning Martial arts under the leadership of Master Bezoni since the very beginning of Fighting Dragon Tae Kwon Do in 2016.
Studying martial arts with Fighting Dragon Tae Kwon Do has helped Mathew learn how to overcome both physical and mental setbacks that happen in life. Early on in his training, Mathew broke his arm which caused him to fall behind his other classmates. He was unable to pass testing at one point due to a failed board break which hindered his progress further. However, these setbacks did not cause him to give up, instead they motivated him to work harder which helped him reach the rank of Black Belt and become the first to achieve that rank with Fighting Dragon Tae Kwon Do.
Mathew is currently working towards his Second Degree Black Belt. He is also working on improving his physical fitness and being better prepared for what life throws at him.
