The six plus years of Martial arts training has helped me a whole lot with school, and my life. Martial arts has helped me gain self-confidence a whole lot. It's helped me to warm the class up. I lead the class with kicking and hand techniques sometimes. At first I was nervous to do that, but now it's just a snap. Also, I was just in a play called Annie. If I haven't been going to martial arts, I probably wouldn't have been able to have participated in the play. I probably would've been too scared to because I would've had stage fright. Martial arts has also helped me with being able to be more patient. I was impatient before, I wanted everything as quickly as possible. I never waited for anything at all. I know I was younger then, but my patience is definitely getting better. I've gained my strength in being patient because sometimes when KwanJangNim talks, he pauses and we wait for him to finish his thoughts. My patience would've been driving me crazy. Now I'm able to wait a long time for his opinions. At least once a year I go with my family to Florida to see my grandma. We all drive about 16 hours to get there. I did it, but not as easily as I can now because of my patience. My strengths have also grown. I've grown physically and mentally. Since we do a lot of exercising, warm ups, and pushups, I've grown much more physically in strength. With mental strength, I've been able to concentrate and listen more when I'm assigned projects to do in school. Since KwanJangNim has taught me to listen and concentrate, I've been getting higher grades.
