- 3RD DEGREE BLACK BELT AND ASSISTANT INSTRUCTOR
Sola Beckley is 17 years old and has moved around various parts of the country throughout his life. He has been in Colorado for the last six years and has found his home here. He was 11 years old when he started training in taekwondo. His brother was involved in Martial Arts and he decided to give it a try too. Something about it stuck with him and he continued to grow and succeed. He has been an instructor for the last three years. Inspired by his own instructors, he wants to help out kids in the same way he was taught so he decided on becoming an instructor. He likes teaching and found a passion for doing it.
Sola is inspired when kids find delight in learning the same things he enjoys. The look that they get when they finally understand something new or share in the same joy excites them both. He loves to teach more complex moves and connect the dots when they understand- such as XMA tricking. He inspires confidence in his students by encouraging them to overcome their fears and progress to unforgettable success. The mind-body connection is important in his lessons as he teaches advanced and complicated moves.
The Venture community has encouraged him to push to his limits. Supported by a team of like-minded individuals, he aspires to learn as much as he can to pass along to the next generation, including tricks that he has developed doing Xtreme Martial Arts. He wants to pass along the family-like experience found at Venture, where they hang out and work hard together as a team. He hopes to one day become a school owner so that he can see instructors under him grow as he grows now.
Sola Beckley is a second-degree Black Belt. He is an Assistant Instructor at Venture Martial Arts in Flatirons. He also teaches XMA (Xtreme Martial Arts).
