My life in the ATA

My life in the ATA started a little over a year and a half ago, just before christmas. I wanted a challenge. I had been playing baseball for two years straight. Really I had become upsest with it. So I was looking for a way out to do something else. My youngest brother Joshua had been taking taekwondo for about six months before me, and I saw how much fun he was having so I decided that I would give it a try. What I didn't know is that it would have such an impact on my life. Then soon after I started I was going to a tournament in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I took home second place in forms and second place in one step sparring. Immediately after that I realized that this is what I wanted to do. But I soon found out that this wasn't going to be a walk in the park. It was going to be alot of hard work. I would have to practice hard at class and then practice even harder at home if I was going to be the best. Most people I suppose would get burned out on something working this hard. But the more I worked and the harder I worked the more I wanted to. But not all of this was to just be the best at what I do but more to prove to myself that I could do it.  The ATA has been a tremendous boost of self confidence, self control, self respect, and self esteem. Without the ATA I don't know where I would be in my life. But hard work does pay off I have been to five tournaments and have always got first or second place in both forms competition and sparring competition. I currently attend classes at Mr. Ken Gardeners Black Belt Academy located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at CG's Gymnastics on Floridia Blvd. I am a Brown Belt recommend. With hopes of someday becoming a Black Belt. Then eventually somewhere in the future becoming a certified instructor and even a school owner. Mabye one day with some luck, hard work, and by the grace of GOD I'll even become a master in the ATA.  This is my life in the ATA.
