Last week, our children attended their first board-breaking event for taekwondo. Our nearly 9 year old son had broken boards many times before, while our nearly 6 year old son only did it once before during his last belt test. His twin sister, however, had never broken a board before, so she was a little nervous. Everyone did very well and our daughter had nothing to worry about. I knew this all along because I have seen her hit her brothers so hard that she actually made them cry.
Here are a few photos to show you the highlights of the event. You can see more photos here and here.
