Scott started training with Muir’s Taekwondo in 1991. By 1993 he had his red belt and was in the “demo squad”, a team that performed Taekwondo demonstrations in public, at school fetes, shopping centres and other locations.
In 2000, after returning from a sabbatical, he furthered his training and finally earned his first dan. In 2004 he was ready to sit for his 2nd dan. A few days before the grading, he sustained an injury that prevented him from grading.
He returned to training after the birth of his first child, and finally sat for his 2nd dan grading in November 2013
