My parents said even before I was born, I went to Tae Kwon Do!
My Mommy explained that she would take my sister to Tae Kwon Do when I was in still in her tummy.
This picture was taken when my sister got her purple belt. She did really well in her exam. See how tiny I was! I touched her cute face!
As I grew older, my sister continued to practice and got better and better.
She moved up from purple belt, to red belt, to red belt strike 1, to red belt strike 2 and now she is in brown belt strike 1. She is a senior belt. Soon, she will try for the black belt.
I told my sister that I wanted to join Tae Kwon Do like her, but she always said, “When you get a little older”. Now, I am finally old enough to join Tae Kwon Do. My sister said that she will teach me, but I have to promise to listen to her. I promised.
My first day was great!
We had to do warm ups first. Look at me doing a plank. Can you do a plank?
Then I learnt how to do a punch.
Then I learnt a move called the “over head block”.
The overhead block is used to stop anyone from hitting you in your head. Here I am practicing my overhead block.
This is the “double arm block”.
I practiced some front kicks and side kicks too!
Then we did a move called the “chariot” and then we bowed at the end of our moves as a sign of respect to the instructor.
I can’t wait for the next session. I will continue to practice what I learnt!.
