My Eldest and Tae Kwan Do

I have mentioned in my other blog that I enrolled my eldest in a Tae Kwan Do Class. A friend of mine referred me to this Club that is close to her town. I thought that this would be good for my 8th grader since he is very stiff, so slow, and lack of activities. My friend’s kids were also new in this club so my boy was not having a hard time adjusting¬† in the class because he knows some kids.

He started on Oct 16, 3 weeks ago, and I can see a lot of improvements already. Like..

Before, he doesnt know how to do push ups, but now he can do up to 10.
He used to be so stiff like a board, now he starting to loosen up a little.
His punches has improved! It used to be so crooked and so awkward looking, now he can punch really good.
He can kick a little bit higher than usual.
He can stretch his body, bend down low, and reach his foot.
And I notice his motor skills has really improve big time.

Check him out below with the little girl in yellow belt. She was teaching him the art of defense. This was a hard move for him, but after repeating a couple of times, he finally got it. I hope he will not get tired of learning Tae Kwan Do. I am so proud of him, because he doesn’t stop trying until he gets it.
