She Did It!

I am so incredibly proud.  Years ago, it had been my idea to enroll her in Taekwondo.  I didn’t expect her to like the sport so much. However, I wasn’t surprised when she told me a few months later that she wanted to get her black belt.  She has proven to be a very determined young lady … striving for and achieving her goals at such a young age!  

We attended class regularly, generally 2-3 times a week, for four years. We studied at home in preparation for her belt level tests by watching videos. We wrote out the kicking techniques on flashcards and she quizzed herself in the car as we did errands.

She never like to spar and we wouldn’t attend class on sparring night unless we’d missed class earlier in the week.  Gradually, however, she became more comfortable … more confidant.  She began to utilize her kicking techniques and to show more enthusiasm for this aspect of the sport.  It certainly showed during her black belt test.

Today, my daughter is a black belt!!
