I am excited today to do my Black Belt grading. My taekwondo journey started when I was 4 years old. All I remember was my brother doing taekwondo and all I wanted to do the same thing as he did. I was too young to start but the Masters were always playing with me. They got me excited about joining.
When I did start, I wasn’t very good at taekwondo especially my kicks, but the Masters have always encouraged me to continue and practice more and more harder. My parents tell me I have a memory of a gold fish. However, I kept going and today here I am ready for grading.
I really enjoyed doing my FAST training lessons. It made me run and exercise a lot, and be fitter.
Self defence was fun when I had to learn defence techniques with my classmates. Master Bryan would always make it fun and interesting for us. Master Benecia and Master Bryanna are definitely cool teachers. They make Poomsae and the taekwondo techniques look so easy and professional. Master Joyce was always there to help me especially during my 1 on 1 with me.
I am lucky to have all my Masters who supported and encouraged me to be better and great at this.
Thank you so much my dear Masters.
Your student, Lachlan Wong
