I have been training with Master Yu for four years now at Champ Martial Arts. Over the least four years, I have made many improvements in my life, such as my weight, and my attitude problems, as my family and friends can attest to. I hear that question a lot, from family, friends, and teachers. A lot of people think that Tae Kwon Do is all about the kicking and the punching and the sparring. I started Champs thinking the same thing. That idea was gone within the end of the month! I will answer this question, not only for myself, but also for the people who don’t know. The most important thing in Tae Kwon Do is the spirit that comes with training. When I started, I was very overweight, my physical stamina simply did not exist, and I gave up too easily. Master Yu, however, did not let me give up. At first, I was like, “Okay, he likes to push us hard.” Now, though, I understand that Master Yu would not let me sit out because he wanted me to succeed, and I am forever grateful, not only for him having confidence in me, but for helping me grow a strong sense of strong self-confidence.
