8 October 05, 2002Black Belt Test Day7 Tae Kwon Do Essay As edited by Cassandra R Lawrence The differences I see in myself and what Tae Kwon Do has done to help my spirit… I am more confident in my own physical ability 1. I gained strength 2. I gained agility 3. I gained coordination 4. I gained endurance I have also gained confidence in leading others because I have the highest belt in many of my classes. I have been able to spend more time with my DAD. I have other interests I like to try, like soccer and gymnastics, but I am going to focus on Tae Kwon Do until I receive my number two black belt. I am putting off these interests for a little while longer. I think I can try another sport while I work for the next black belt. This first black belt is taking my focus.

9 October 05, 2002Black Belt Test Day8 Essay (Continued) I am enjoying these in Tae Kwon Do. 1. I really like to spar. 2. My favorite Kick is jumping snap kick 3. My favorite activity is sticks 4. I have gotten good at swing kick 5. I speak a little bit of Korean 6. I can also speak better in other languages 7. After 3 years I can do a push up. Maybe I still can’t do 10, but my back is almost straight! 8. I met some people (kids) who also go to Norman Rockwell Elementary school

10 October 05, 2002Black Belt Test Day9 Essay (last page) When I get a stripe I get to eat some of my favorite foods. I go to Tony Roma’s for rewards and eat Bar B-Q Ribs. I also get to do these. 1. I go to Taco Time for Rewards 2. I go to (Baskin-Robbins) for double stripe awards 3. Go to Dairy Queen for vanilla ice cream I will go to the space needle and eat a special dinner and see the moving tables as soon as I get my black belt!! I will challenge myself between my first and second degree to learn forms more quickly.
