Michael Rahn

Michael’s passion for teaching his students is easy to see from the moment you mention anything taekwondo. As the founder and principal of Power with Purpose, Michael strives to encourage his students to master their skills whilst learning key tools for life such as discipline, respect towards others and the ability to listen.

“My job is to help students go beyond their abilities. Change is the most enjoyable thing I see within Power with Purpose. Having parents explain the noticeable difference in their child is worth coming into classes.”

Michael has had over 20 years practising taekwondo. His first memories were practising moves with his cousin in the backyard.

“I love the sense of fair play and discipline that is associated with Taekwondo. Students learn to take responsibility for their actions, whilst always giving their best.”

After multiple workplace injuries in his work as a motor trimmer, Michael took a break from taekwondo but couldn’t resist his urge for teaching.

For 10 years he taught apprentices of all abilities the motor trimming trade, then went on to complete a diploma along with a graduate and postgraduate degree in counselling.

Once his son Matt was born, Michael’s resolve to retake classes and overcome his injuries was renewed. Michael’s ability to bring out the best in his students flourished and he couldn’t get enough of seeing the positive change happening within his students… and his son!

After achieving his black belt with his son, Michael further progressed, achieving a 6th Dan whilst running classes after his training. The class numbers swelled with more and more students joining each day… and Power with Purpose was born!

“There was little comparison between what we were doing and everyone else. The students were enjoying the classes we were teaching. I love seeing the kids coming in who are excited to do our class. It’s always great knowing you’ve had a positive impact within our students’ lives.”

In his spare time, Michael enjoys taking some time off and getting away from the city. You may find him in the garage building hot rods or sewing the different coloured belts for his next class!
