We are getting ready to spend much of today and all of tomorrow on Taekwondo. We have a tournament this weekend and are helping to setup. Should be interesting.
Personally, I think it’s wonderful that Master Singh gives the kids so much responsibility. The teens and adults know they will be called upon to help. I know some people don’t like this, but, for me, it feels like we’re all in it together instead of just going to a business to learn TKD.The tournament is exciting for my middle son. He’s looking forward to the competition. I’m competeing just this once for the experience – I’ll just be glad when it’s over. I love the demonstration team, but individual competition is not my forte.
We’re having a raffle to raise money for the demonstration team. My son has gotten to see the process of putting together a fundraiser and will spend much of tomorrow helping to try and make it a success. Nothing like a little business knowledge mixed in with your martial arts.Learning is truly an on-going, happening-around-you-all-of-the-time process. He’s learning a work ethic, honor in competition, a martial art, business and money management all in one package.
While we aren’t unschoolers, it’s easy to see how life provides so many opportunities to learn and grow.Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! Will post pics next week!
