Tae Kwon Do

Ethan has been asking to try karate for the past year, so finally just before his birthday we decided to let him do a trial month of Tae Kwon Do.  He was so excited and anxious to get a uniform and belt, that might have been the main reason he wanted to join!

So he participated in a month of classes and has absolutely loved every single minute of it.  For Ethan, that's a success.  He likes a lot of things, but doesn't hold interest in them for long after the newness wears off...with the exception of Legos.  Nick and I knew tae kwon do would be good for him though, there's much more that goes into it than just kicks and punches.  They teach kids from a very young age about respect, confidence, patience, strength and more.  Ethan has truly soaked it up and talks about class often.

They all start out with a white belt and progress within each belt color by earning different colored stripes for mastering certain things: combinations; forms; chores; house rules, etc.  So far he has earned 3 strips on his white belt.


I'm sure there'll be more pictures to come!  HiaaaYaaaa!!
