Hi, I am a Mom.
I live in San Diego, California. I have three rambunctious kids at home right now because the schools are shut down. Covid has been affecting us all a lot. I have been striving to keep them busy while trying to also have them be productive and not just play video games.
Then I was introduced to Taekwondo at Home by a friend. I was excited for the opportunity for my children, especially to get them busy doing something else. By having three children though, I needed to participate because pairs are required. I am very happy that I decided to take the course too as I learned a lot of new things. Flexibility and fitness were my main take aways for me and my children because we haven't been getting any exercise lately. There was also a few concepts that will help with everyday life such as focus and perseverance. For me, these will help with being able to finish tasks around the house I start, and set higher goals in life for me and my family. Lastly, the self defense skills help put me at ease for my self and knowing that my kids are more bully-proof at school.
I think this was a very cost effective way of finding out if taekwondo is a good fit for our family. After Covid is over, we are going to sign up in a local club.
I highly recommend doing this course because of the many take aways and it was a lot of fun!
