    I myself wouldn't be a person to live up to someone but people in the UK seem to be living up to Jade Jones. One Olympic medal seems to influence a whole nation of Taekwondo enthusiast's on a positive note. Its a good confidence boost for all younger students that need someone to look up to and at such a young age she is a perfect roll model. She has made the sport more popular throughout the UK and Ireland.

    Today's youth would benefit from more quality examples of realistic martial arts, like many of us had when we were younger. Most of today's movies are either heavy with CGI or use martial artists so exceptional with their acrobatics that few could ever hope to reach their level.
