He’s a Ninja! My boys have been taking TaeKwonDo for 2 1/2 years thru Willow Martial Arts and they love it! Recently, my 7 year old tested for his next belt before moving into the Advanced Adult class (adult class… at 7 years old… makes me a bit scared). It was so fun to watch him work toward this goal.
The test started with a few basic moves. I love the focus on his face while he was demonstrating his punches.
More punches and a high block.
Next up, a demonstration of some of the kicks he has learned as well as performing his first three forms.
Lastly, he had to demonstrate some timing drills with one of his instructors who is a black belt. Unfortunately, no one in his class is his size so his instructor had to get on his knees!
Well, he passed his test – sadly, I didn’t get any photos of him with his new belt on – it’s yellow with a white stipe down the middle. He did such a great job. He is now in the adult class with his older brother and dad. I am glad he loves it so much.
I’ll keep you posted about the next step in his ninja training!
