My Daughter Is Awesome

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I just want to say how proud I am of my daughter. She is six and in her second year of tae kwon do. Today they did sumo wrestling, and she was partners with the biggest boy in the class (she's also the only girl in her group). She did not back down for a second. It was so amazing to see her determination. She's strong and confident, and I am so happy about that. I was painfully shy for most of my life, and I felt totally powerless. I feel that through tae kwon do my daughter is being taught to be powerful. I love that.

    When I was a little girl, I wanted to take martial arts classes. My mom said "No, that's for boys." I am still mad about it over 20 years later. I feel like my childhood could have been greatly, greatly enhanced if I had built confidence with martial arts training. Good for you and great for your daughter :)

    Good for her! We need more young girls like her, to grow up feeling powerful and strong and fearless!
