Scouting things



Wednesday, August 29, 2012


I've just started taking taekwondo.

Stuff about it:
It's fighting with both hands and feet.
It's from Korea.
Kicks and punches. My favorite.
You yell alot. (Called the kiai) It helps your body tense up and be stronger)
You practice with these targets.

First thoughts: This uniform is really loose.  I could use it for a rain shelter.
They speak Korean here. I need to study up on that.
They are uber strict.
I need to stretch more. They count in Korean when they stretch.
Everyone I know goes here. ( the instructor could name about 30 people I know)

Fun though.  You bow a lot and you say sir to everything.  The uniforms are really loose without the belt. And you get the belt on the second week.  I like it.
Last thing: Black Belt. You can get a black belt every 2 years.  There are nine levels. So the best one is a level 9 black belt.

We learned basic blocking and kicking.

Yay I can count to 5 in Korean! :D
