My son started taking taekwondo lesson when he was 9 years old. Back then, this sport was pick by us randomly as we need to identify a sport to allow him to let out his excess energy.
He surprised us by doing very well in this sport and brought home many medals after.
As for my girl, after watching her brother going for his training for years, she too join the sport at the age of 5.
Recently she got her brown belt and was ready for competition. We signed her up for exposure and didn't expect her to bring home a medal.
Just before the competition, she told us that she has to do well so that she can bring home a medal for her 公公. True to her words, she was so determine that she didn't give up and won.
Credit should also be given to the coach who show so much passion for the sport as well as the love for the kids. Believing in them and giving them the confidence.
Just imagine, she gives extra coaching without charging extra. It is seriously hard to find coaches that teaches not based on monetary gain these days.
Most importantly, the kids all love her and behaves really well. Yes, even my son.
So well done kids! I am so proud of you all.
