Tae Kwon Do

I would like to talk about what the tenets of Tae Kwon Do has done for me. In my first and second essay’s I spoke about what Tae Kwon Do has done for me. Now at the age of 54 I would like to talk about what the tenet’s of Tae Kwon Do as done for me over the years that I learned from Tae Kwon Do. For me the tenet’s of Tae Kwon Do are as important to me as my Christianity or religion. The way I look at it, is they both have some of the same characteristics and if you live by both of these values you cannot help but be a very nice person with a big heart.
I was 15 years old as I said in my first essay very vulnerable and impressionable not knowing which way to go in life until I started Tae Kwon Do. I have experienced many things in life to name a few I was a Firefighter, Army soldier, Paramedic, nurse technician and a police officer, all of these things have taught me very valuable things in life all having to do with helping people in some way or another, this is the person I think God wanted me to be. Even though all these experiences were great and taught me great things I have to say learning the tenets of Tae Kwon Do and living them along with my Christianity has made me the person I am today.

If I didn’t start Tae Kwon Do who knows where I would be today possibly in trouble all the time or even in prison. Yes, I have to give a lot of credit to my mother too for raising me, she did the best she could being a single parent but even that may have not been enough without Tae Kwon Do. Along with my mother, GM Jung taught me the values of the tenets of Tae Kwon Do and how to be respectful person. The values of the tenets of Tae Kwon Do will be passed on to generation to come. Thank You GM Jung for being there for me and will be forever grateful. Pilsung.
