Ten things I learned at a Taekwondo Extravaganza:

Holy Buckets!
  1. I think a better name for it would be “Bow Fest”.
  2. If you yell “Hiyaa” really loud while doing anything, you might win a trophy or a medal.
  3. There are actually boards you can buy that can be broken and be put back together — only to be broken again (God, I wish I would have thought of that)!
  4. There is a special way that you tie your belt. The knot should look like a fortune cookie. I don’t see the fortune cookie, but I am hungry because…
  5. They last a very long time! Pack a lunch.
  6. The medals and trophies are some of the coolest I have ever seen.
  7. There is something called a pattern competition where each athlete must perform a sequence of moves in order to place high. Some of these patterns require nothing more than fine finger movements and/or placements. It is actually impressive to watch a ten-year-old memorize and perform a 16-sequence pattern.
  8. Two first-graders sparing against each other is probably one of the funniest/cutest things you will ever see.
  9. Taekwondo does not discriminate. You can be differing sizes, abilities, athleticism, and/or backgrounds and still earn top honors in a respective event – which means that there is still hope for me!
  10. Taekwondo requires masterful concentration and hours of preparation. It has actually done wonders for my daughter.
