Cavan McBrien, age 8

November 16, 2015–    I just started Taekwondo and I love it.  I love Taekwondo because it’s fun to kicking combos, blocks, and punches.  Board breaking is really fun!  The first time I broke a wooden board was my yellow belt test.  I was very excited and proud.

My masters are great teachers.  They are strong and kind.  They show respect for everyone.  They also teach us respect for each other and for Taekwondo.  We show respect by bowing-in when we enter the Dojang.  We also show respect by listening and paying attention to the masters.  During lessons we always take time to honor our country by saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

I mostly love getting stripes in Taekwondo because it makes me feel happy getting stripes.  It also makes me try harder to get the next belt.  I love Taekwondo because it is fun and it is good for me.
