Since he started Tae Kwon Do, over the last two years he has become a very confident person. As for being shy, that went away too. Today you will find Sam leading class,which you would have never seen him do in the past. The photos show where Sam broke boards at black belt class the Friday before. GM Jung asked Sam what Tae Kwon Do has done for him. He said, “It has made me a tougher person and has given me great confidence in myself."

This is Sam Bailey. He is 14 years old and about to test for Temporary black belt in June. Sam comes from a family of 10 brothers and sisters. When Sam started Tae Kwon Do about two years ago, he was 12 years old, a very reserved and shy kid without much confidence like so many children who take Tae Kwon Do or any other martial art.
