Hi, I first started Taekwondo at age 19, and absolutely loved training, which i kept up until 2nd grade when i was 23. For many reasons i wasn't able to keep up my training and after nearly 30 years break, I returned four years ago at age 52 and finally obtained my black belt about a month ago at age 56! I probably can't kick or jump as high as i might have done in my twenties, but i am still happy with my achievement, and feel that my persistence and attitude has paid off. I just do my best, and it is great to feel strong and healthy. I tried gym programs, but tended to find them boring, but taekwondo is never boring for me, i love it!
