New Taekwondo Chapter
Tonight I took J to his first individual Taekwondo class. The photo is of him receiving his new camouflage belt from Master Wegmann. After lots of consideration, we decided that it is best for him to continue alone. This will be his area of expertise. It should take him about 2 years to earn his first black belt.
I was impressed with how quickly he caught on to the new moves tonight, especially the ones with some of the TKD weapons that he got for Christmas.
The other good news about Taekwondo is that J won a Wii in their membership drive drawing the night of our graduation to camo belts. A friend of his (via his grandmother who is a good friend of mine) signed up to take classes. As a result J ended up with a bunch of tickets in the bowl so he had a good chance of winning. The Wii was the grand prize from the drawing. We get to pick it up after class on Thursday! He is so excited about it. I hope it meets his expectations. I'm looking forward to it too!
