For the last couple years my niece, Stephanie, has been really active in Taekwondo. I remember last year at Christmas time she took Dallas and I into her room and showed us her belts and explained how you advanced and what you had to do. She also had 2 boards that she broke with her foot. Pretty cool.
She took another test and is a blue belt now. It’s the highest level she can reach through the Park and Rec department where she lives. Next year if she wants to continue, she’ll have to take lessons at a dojo. And of course, when I hear “dojo” all I can think of is “Pain does not exist in this dojo, does it?” “No seinsei!”
Way to go Steph!
