Raising the Bar - Students pushed to "Kick it up notch" Literally!
January 31, will be all about: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, and Indomitable Spirit. These are the tenants of TaeKwon-Do. Saturday, 14 students will be pushed beyond the limits in a Black Belt testing, held in a closed session at Waterford TaeKwon-Do.
Much more than kicks and punches, the Martial Arts instill values, discipline, respect and much more in students. These students pre testing for various degrees (also known as Dans) of black belt, will be pushed well beyond their physical abilities. For over 7 hours they will be required to demonstrate, knowledge of Martial Arts history, foreign history, physics of the body, and self defense.
Martial Arts provide a solid foundation, I believe not found in the general public and most schools today. These students, ages 9 - over 40, are to be commended for there efforts to better themselves and bring those same disciplines to the greater community.
