My name is Matthew and I started Taekwondo in August 06. At first I wanted to try it because it looked like fun, but now I enjoy the workout and different moves you learn. Since starting, I have worked hard and participated in two gradings, passing both. My goal is to get my black belt one day.
As parents we wanted Matthew to have a sport that taught him discipline and how to focus on his goals while still having fun. Taekwondo has definitely helped with his overall concentration and has also built up his self esteem.
