Taekwondo coach with the Royal Military College Saint-Jean Remparts since 2019, Carlos Amezcua has accepted the challenge of joining our coaching team mainly to develop excellence and ensure succession within our taekwondo team.

Arriving in Quebec in 2012, he brings from Mexico a wealth of experience in his discipline both as an athlete and coach. During his sports career, he performed on his country's national teams in the junior and then senior categories. In 2008, he became head coach of the Institute of Technological Studies of Monterrey which obtained the title of national university champion for 3 consecutive years. He held this coaching position until his arrival in Québec.

The wealth of knowledge and experience gained in his home country allowed him to quickly carve out a place in the world of Taekwondo in Canada. Since 2014, he has been coaching junior and senior teams in various international competitions such as the Junior Pan-American Championships (2019), the Senior Pan-American Championships (2018), the qualifications for the Youth Olympic Championships (2018) and the World Junior Championships (2014) and qualifications (2018). He is also the owner and director of the HLD Taekwondo club where he trains athletes who are driven by excellence.
