I started practicing Hwa Rang Do® because my mom wanted me to be more self-confident and be able to defend myself. I was a shy little girl who had hard times participating in my kindergarten plays. During my first Tae Soo Do® class I cried. I remember initially it was so strange to kick and punch, but in a short time I was hooked! I started training Tae Soo Do® with my dad when I was 6 and training together helps us support and push each other to improve.
