It’s so hard to believe that 12 years ago today I was only 3 1/2 years old and I took my first taekwon-do class with Master Kou. My brother Greg was already a yellow belt and so was my dad. I had been watching them for months every day and I couldn’t wait to try it myself. I felt so ‘grown up and special’ as soon as I put on the crisp white uniform. I wanted so badly to be like my big brother.
The rest is history. I never imagined how much TKD would change my life forever! The date August 21, 1999 is even on my old pictures 🙂
