Taekwondo is a really big deal in our house and has been for the last four years ever since Buddy saw a class through a window and was instantly hooked. If you ask me about what Taekwondo means to Buddy I will probably cry. It’s not something I talk about online, but he struggles with severe often crippling anxiety, and out of all the things we have done to help him, Taekwondo has done the most. It’s a combination of the philosophy behind the art as well as amazing mentoring instructors, and I can’t recommend this incredible martial art enough. His strong desire to practice this martial art motivated him to overcome so many personal fears and challenges and I am beyond incredibly proud of him. He loves it so much that after watching him train for two years, his sisters fell in love with Taekwondo too and it’s such a joy (and dare i say adorable?) to watch all three training together! Being able to break boards with your kicks is an integral part of the journey and a skill you need in order to progress to senior belts. With three kids practicing we decided to get a kickboxing bag that all of our kids could use to train and develop strength in their kicks. And guess what you fill kickboxing bags with – FABRIC SCRAPS! And guess what I have coming out of my ears – FABRIC SCRAPS! So today is the story of filling a kickboxing bag with fabric scraps I’ve been hoarding for much too long!
