Disclaimer: Pictures in this article are of students learning Taekwondo at Robinson’s Taekwondo Arden Arcade Center and have been posted with the intention of sharing and promoting Taekwondo and acknowledging Martial Arts as an essential part of a child’s growth and development. This is my personal blog…these are my opinions, thoughts and ideas…I am not paid to write. I request any parent that wishes not to have their child’s picture posted here, please email at email@example.com to have them removed.
We commit. We learn. We grow. We train hard (well, I do not train as hard as I should, I do what I can, and try to be better than last time!!). We get stronger. We help each other. We work together. We go past our limitations. We exceed our expectations. Every single day!
And then every two months we get to test our skills :)
Showing respect to the Flags…
Mr. Mota giving instructions before testing ..
Warmup begins..students doing their best as this is a part of the test!
The cutest father-daughter pair at our dojang – Melanie and Mr. Kim (don’t go by the white belts around their waist, both of them have amazing technique and are fierce fighters!)
My new friend Ashlee – she’s fit n beautiful n amazingly flexible n has equally great technique! And definitely don’t look at her white belt…she’s fierce!!! That’s one talented, dedicated, inspiring family.
Testing with Ashlee is Ali, he’s bright, respectful and a fast learner…will appreciate and congratulate everyone after every class and/or test.
These are all great kids- determined, talented and most of them on their way to earning a Black Belt. I have much respect for parents who toil all day and still make sure their kids are in class on time, learning a great skill!!!
Our instructors Mr Mota, Mr. Stoffel and Mr. Burnham after they put Gabe and Alex together!!
Just a slight size difference guys…Gabe (on the right) is the tallest and the nicest kid (lol Gabe is nice, he won’t be mad I called him a kid) and Alex (on the left) has the loudest kihap, brings great energy to the floor!!
Board Breaking Fun begins….
Holding the board and assisting the kids is 3rd Degree Black Belt Chris Brown, another talented kid!!
.. and we shall test again in March!!!
Next time I will have someone take pictures of the higher belts testing.
