Before I ever started taekwondo. I did not know a single technique or move of taekwondo. When I first heard that I was going to go to learn taekwondo, I was confused because I didn’t know what it was. I was very nervous on my first day, I was thinking so much about what the other students were going to think of me. I thought I was never going to make any friends. When I came here I felt very welcomed and I was relieved and learned a lot on my first day.
As I went on and made more friends, learned a lot more about taekwondo, I started to like this place. As I started to come more and more my interest in taekwondo became bigger and bigger, so did the way I did the techniques became sharper, my mind also became faster.
I really liked this and taekwondo because, when I came here it wasn't a place that overwhelmed me. It was a place that would learn alot but still have fun at the same time. Taekwondo taught me a lot of discipline and taught me to hold back even when someone attacked first and not to hit back and be the good person. It made me more flexible and made me more skillful faster and smarter. I really like taekwondo.
Overall, I have learned a lot from taekwondo.I have 4 gold, 4 silver, and 3 bronze medals from tournaments. It was a up and down. Now I don’t have to be afraid of not knowing how to defend myself.
