Tae Kwon Do

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!.

    Wow, this is a wonderful timeline, what a joy to see! I loved seeing the photo of you as a baby and the photo of you looking up into your big sisters eyes, obviously listening to everything that she says! The progress that your sister has made is an inspiration! I know that you have the will and that you WILL put your all into succeeding at this too, I look forward to seeing the photos in the future. Regarding doing a plank, yes I can hold one, but only for about 40 seconds, my side plank needs more work though! When we are back to school we should have mini-brain breaks from sitting at our desks and working to all doing a plank, I wonder who will last the longest???
