Avery Tripp has been training in Tae Kwon Do for 7 years with Bakers Tae Kwon Do Team in Salisbury Connecticut and is a brown belt. She has won 2 junior female breaking grand championships and 2 junior form grand championships. When not competing she volunteers her time to assist at the Tiny Tigers class (students ages 5-12) at her dojo. Her instructors Dylan Baker, Mike Thomas, Katrina Bates, James Murnane, and Kirsten Haaland inspire her to be the best that she can, push her at every class, and help her achieve her goals. They are great role models that she looks up.
Avery started competing with the USBA/WBA in February of 2017. The USBA/WBA has given Avery more confidence in her abilities and provides her with family-like support through everyone’s great sportsmanship and encouragement. Avery looks forward to seeing everyone at each tournament. What Avery likes best about the USBA/WBA is that it is full of great role models and leaders and shows people what true martial arts is about.
Avery is a tenth grader at Housatonic Valley Regional High School in Falls Village, Connecticut. She is an honors student who is also a varsity cross country runner. She lives in Falls Village with her parents Jeff and Letitia, her younger brother Silas and many pets. When not in school or participating in Tae Kwon Do or cross country, Avery enjoys volunteering her time with the Special Olympics and assisting in science enrichment programs with elementary school children.
