My Son's a Badass

I'm trying not to post specifically on photos here, since I just spent an inordinate amount of time trying to get that cute little photo tab up there--but I couldn't resist this shot. It was taken by a mom in our TKD school that recommended the camera we bought.

It's the best TKD shot we've got of them in the last year--including the professional ones we had done.

  1. Chris,

    I just read through your entire Songahm Odyssey from the beginning. I was terribly disappointed to have the story end there. Please post some form of update on whether or not the new dojang worked out for you. I have hope that it did.

    I've just begun my own journey. Of course for and with my two daughters, 5 and 8. Well, it started out for them, but I feel I'm getting as much out of it as, if not more than, they are.

    I have similar frustrations regarding half-belt testing, and also not touching on material that is needed to excel, or even is required for testing. Also, I've noticed that most of the instructors avoid correcting my kids. I've had only one approach one of my daughters, and it was to threaten pushups for bad behavior, not to correct her form. I still appreciated the correction, as we are not allowed to correct fellow students, even our kids, in the dojang, and are instructed not to discipline for bad behavior observed during training when we get home.

    We do have a great school, which is very close to the Grand Master Candidate. Some minor changes would make great differences.

    As this is becoming more of a rant than what I intended, I'll sign off now. But please update us on your status. A reply to this post would be most helpful to preserve my sanity.

    Thank you for sharing your story with us.
