Yvette Yong


Canadian National Taekwondo athlete and Canadian Armed Forces member, Yvette Yong, was motivated by her family to begin her athletic career. With a mother who was a track athlete and a father who was a kung fu instructor, its only natural that Yvette grew up active and fit, playing all sports from basketball, volleyball, and tennis to short track speed skating.

Yvette is now a 3-time World Military Taekwondo Champion. As an athlete and a member of the Canadian Armed Forces, Yvette feels privileged to be able to represent her country in and out of sport as an athlete and a soldier.

When she is not training/competing, Yvette is also a trainer herself at MOVE Fitness Club and runs an after school program for kids called Little Movers Taekwondo.
