Every Friday we go to Taekwon-Do it’s a type of martial art. The first thing we did was to show respect by saying, “Yes Sir” or “Yes Ma’am”. Next we learnt how to stand in positions and bow. Then we did punching, we punched high, middle and low. Then we practised punching with a step.
After that we did a kick they told us to bend our toes back or we would have sore feet. We did kicking and stepping. Then we got to kick the thick pads held by Sir and Ma’am.
They made us learn the five tenets. They are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit. I cannot wait until next Friday to learn even more Taekwon-Do.
Room 8 learns Taekwon-Do
By Keziah Krishna Rm 8
On Friday 10th of February Room 8 did Taekwon-Do. We learned some really cool stuff, like punching. Mr Pellow and his helper were good at all of them. We also learnt how to do kicks. We had to kick the pad. It was hard for me to do the kick, but I will try my best to do it next time.
Then we were taught how to do push-ups. I did not like the push-ups because we could not do girl push-ups. All of us had to do the boy push-ups, it was really hard. We learnt to punch high, in the middle and low down. Mr Pellow showed us how to break out of a wrist hold too.
Mr Pellow taught us the five tenets of Taekwon-Do:
I really enjoyed the Taekwon-Do lessons. I can’t wait until next Friday to learn some more.
