Another Black Belt Story! From Mr. Evan Condon…
The most important thing about Tae Kwon Do for me is the discipline that it taught me. I became a better listener and I became better at taking care of myself and my family. I showed my friends and teachers in the Master Club Classes, that I had had a Black Belt Attitude because I practiced my piano, did my homework and cleaned my room. This is how I showed discipline.
I started doing Taekwondo at my school in first grade. It helped me learn how to protect myself and others from danger. I learned how to say “no” to strangers, to fight back in self-defense and to escape from harm.
Taekwondo taught me to show respect for others, to treat people how they want to be treated. It taught me to be polite, to look at people when they are talking to me. I learned to say, “Yes Sir/no Sir” and “Yes Ma’am/no Ma’am.”
Great essay Mr. Condon!
