Jian’s First Fight

I mentioned a couple of months ago, that I enrolled my eldest in a Taekwando Class. Last Thursday, it was his first time to Fight. Since it was his first time, they did’nt let him fight with the other students in his class, instead, he fought with one of the adults students who assist the Masters. As you look at the photo below, he’s not wearing a Uniform yet. I haven’t ordered him yet, because I was not sure if he will pursue taekwando. The uniform is very expensive. For the whole set, it cost $75, so I don’t wanna waste my money on that when he decided that Karate is not for him. Anyway, in this Karate CLub, they don’t advice to purchase a uniform right away, like what I’ve said earlier the kid might decide to stop.

Anyhow, I apologize for the blurry photos, for I was seated far from the center.  My kuya did great in his first fight, but he sure needs a lot of practice with his forms. My son is a very gentle and timid boy, so he had a hard time doing some kicking and punching. Sooner or later he will be strong and earn his yellow belt, that is if he will not quit. Right now, he is enjoying it.
