Reaching a Goal

When Jacob wrote down  his goals at the end of 2011, one of his goals was to test for and obtain his 2nd degree black belt.  Last night he achieved his goal.
He had to give a brief biography, he did really well speaking in front of the crowd.  His toastmaster class that he’s taking at co-op is paying off!
Look at that face!

Jacob, with his TKD Master, and his best buddy.
With or without the black belt, we are so proud of his hard work and dedication to pursuing his goals!

    Congratulations! How old is he?

    My kids are taking TWD too. In less than a year they have achieved orange belt level. I noticed more focus, concentration and self control in them as they grow in their skills.

    Thanks Tereza! He is 11, he received his first black belt at 9. He started TKD when he was 5. He loves it!
