Why I Like TaeKwonDo
One of the reasons I like TaeKwonDo is because it makes my busy schedule more fun. Also, my dad promised that when I become a black belt he would join TaeKwonDo with me. He was a TaeKwonDo teacher and taught part-time at a small TaeKwonDo summer school. He is a 3rd degree black belt! Even though we are both busy, we are going to try to come as often as we can so we can spend time together doing a sport we both love.
I also love TaeKwonDo because we have the world’s nicest teacher, Master Edward! He adds fun things while training us students. He turns board breaking into competitions and he lets us have sparring matches with other students. I started TaeKwonDo in Levittown but when we moved to Jericho I refused to change TaeKwonDo schools. But it is still a little far, but it is worth it to become a martial artist! All the instructors are AWESOME! I am proud to be a Korean doing a national Korean sport with other Korean and non-Korean teachers and students.
