Gameboy had his second Tae Kwon Do testing this weekend and he did an awesome job! I love all the life lessons he is learning through this sport! His coach is a fabulous guy who wants to teach them tae kwon do and help build their character. He has so many students, but he knows each one well. He can get Gameboy to sit still and focus, which is not an easy task for this 6 year old boy. At the testing, they have to demonstrate the patterns and self defense moves they have learned. They must also sit still as they watch the other students show off what they know. At the end, they must break a board to receive their new belt. Gameboy loves to break boards, but at this testing his coach added a new challenge. A black belt was blocking the board and sparring with him. He needed to get around the black belt and break the board using a front snap kick. He had a minute and a half to complete the task and he did it in about 10 seconds. It was great to watch. Here are some pictures from the big day.
Coach singled him out and said what a great job he did and talked about how much he improved. He has been beaming ear to ear all day. We were so proud!
