1. Why did you start Taekwon-Do: I loved Taekwon-Do when I was a kid, I stopped it though because they moved the lessons too far away from where I lived. I also wanted to learn how to defend myself.
2. What made you interested enough to join: One day I saw a lot of people come from teh gym & I said "Hmm what martial arts class is that?" My friend who was in Taekwon-Do at the time came up to me and said "you should do Taekwon-Do". I also did it when I was about 4.
3. What did you think being a black belt meant before you started training: You could beat people up and the opponent wouldn't have a chance.
4. What do you think being a black belt means now:  When I say the Tenets of Taekwon-Do, I think of the traits of what a Black Belt has.

5. What changed your opinion:  Well, becoming to know a Black Belt and how they teach me kind of represents the Tenets of Taekwon-Do .
6. What was your goal when you started Taekwon-Do: To become a Black Belt and become more flexible . 
7. What is your goal now: To become a Black Belt, know how to defend myself properly, and to be even more flexible than I am now (It's working!)
