Chop Punch!

I am super late on posting this, but I advanced to the rank of 1st Degree Decided Black Belt in songham tae kwon do a couple weeks ago.  I won't bore you with testing details, but I will share a few pictures from the day.

I have to say it...this picture really shows off nothing other than my baby fat..... Doboks are so flattering!

Bowing in for traditional board break

My foot is still bruised from those boards coming back together on my foot.
(Oh and the holder on the left was Caleb's PCA last summer)

Random toddler thought my instructor needed some help....

The whole crew!


This was a pretty special day for me.  Tim really pushed me to start and I was unconvinced I would enjoy it or be any good at it.  I'm still not sure I'm really any good, but hey I must be ok, right?!  I love how strong and in control tae kwon do makes me feel.  It challenges me physically and mentally and I highly encourage everyone to consider this activity for themselves and for their families.
