Taekwondo

Over the past three months Emilia's fourth grade class has been doing Taekwondo during PE. Master Hong has been teaching the kids some basic moves and how to break boards.

As a culmination of their course, the entire 4th grade class presented what they had learned to other students, teachers and parents during Show What You Know.


Breaking boards was the most entertaining part. I asked Emilia if she preferred Taekwondo or Karate and she liked Karate better simply because they play games to develop agility and reflexes in the kids. 



One of our neighbors is also a black belt in Taekwondo and has been teaching classes at the church free of charge ro the kids that are interested. Emilia and Carson have both attended but they have mentioned the training was geared towards beginners. Another issue with the class, is that there is no way for the kids to pass off different katas and earned higher belts. 

They have both expressed an interested in returning to karate once their Robotics class is over in December.
