FOCUS! SHOW RESPECT! SET GOALS!
You might think this is the front page of a School Planner, but it was actually part of a Martial Arts lesson on getting better grades in school! Recently, we had an exciting visit from Mr. Reinelt of Triumph Taekwon-do and he introduced us to the “Black Belt Attitude“!
We learned about listening with your eyes, your body, and your mind! Respect is one of the most important parts of Taekwon-do and no one… NO ONE… uses Taekwon-do if they are just mad at someone. It is for self-defense only. Some of the steps to improving yourself are to: focus, be organized, set goals, try your best, and use teamwork.
Mr. Reinelt showed everyone how to do a proper “snap-kick” and then we had a competition between 2 students to see who could kick the most high kicks in a minute! It was a tie! We practiced our jumping up and ducking down by trying to escape the DREADED YELLOW NOODLES! Oh my! Then we practiced teamwork in a game called Pass the Pizza!
It was a LOT of fun and laughing but we learned a lot too! Maybe some of us might even join Taekwon-do! It would take a LONG time to become a 6th degree Black Belt like Mr. Reinelt though!!! http://www.triumphtkd.com/instructors.html
Here we are in action!
