My Photos: Our Two Sons Warming Up for Next Weekend's Taekwondo Belt Tests

Both our boys have their belt tests coming up for taekwondo this Friday and Saturday.  They had their pre-test the week before last.  Our youngest, who is 6, was a little nervous.  Although he had tested and earned a belt promotion once before, he is needlessly unsure of himself at times.  Still, he impressed me by knowing a form that I can't even remember even though I've watched all 3 of my children practice it numerous times.

We'll be sneaking in some extra practice this week to see if we can't raise his confidence level just a bit.  I know he'll do just fine on his test this Friday.  Now, I just need to make sure he knows that.

Our 9 year old son did exceptionally well on his pre-test.  I was so impressed by his focus and that he was able to keep that focus from beginning to end.  One of his instructors, whom our son respects greatly, took the time to tell him how well he did that morning.  This meant so much to our son and really gave him an extra boost of confidence.  I know he'll do well on his test this Saturday.

  1. Can't wait for the update to see how they did. I think they'll do just great. Probably hasn't something to do with the 6 year old age and I know I'd be nervous as well. He might lose the nervousness when he is out there doing it.

  2. I am looking forward to hearing how it goes. I wonder if martial arts help kids with concentration who have a hard time concentrating.

  3. Looks like they are having fun. Fingers crossed that it goes well!
