Troy began coaching at Gold Star in the winter of 2023 and is certified in CPR and First Aid. He trained in gymnastics at a neighboring club for seven years during elementary and middle school. These classes supported his study of Kenjutsu, which he had begun at age 3. Kenjutsu is a Japanese martial art which centers around techniques with a sword, thus sparking Troy’s interest in blades and daggers. Hopefully he has broadened his enthusiasm to all forms of cutlery and can assist his mother in the kitchen slicing vegetables!
