Making the difference for families
People ask me why someone my age would start taking Taekwondo family classes. The answer was simple. I’m crazy. But seriously, I wanted to be a part of my children’s life. I no longer wanted to be a spectator, but an active participant in their lives. You only get so many years when your kids want you around. Before you know it, it’s “Mom, can you drive me to the mall?”, “Mom, can I borrow some money?”, or the dreaded “drop me off here, so my friends don’t see you”. I want to enjoy their childhood before I’m officially relegated to the sidelines.
We started taking the family classes last June, and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made. With everything going on in the world, not only is this a distraction, it makes me feel a lot better knowing that my kids and I are learning to defend ourselves. It has brought us closer and they enjoy seeing me succeed as well as fall on my butt (literally). When we get a belt promotion, it’s a family celebration.
The Family classes work on the same skills as the regular classes do, but spending time with your kids is a great added bonus. Knowing that I’m getting a terrific workout is also great . If fact I’ve gotten more toned, more flexible, and more endurance that I ever thought possible. I’m probably in better shape now than when I was 20. I could have joined a workout gym, but this is SO much better.
Recently, I asked my children what they thought if I stopped taking family classes with them. I got a resounding ” NO!”. That’s the best reason to take this class. – by Penny Rynar
