During the Koryo dynasty Taekwondo was best known as a fitness and recreational system But it soon changed to a military fighting art In 1909 Japan invaded Korea and outlawed the practice of Taekwondo This left people no option but to study in secret under famous masters In 1945 Japan freed Korea and Taekwondo flourished Taekowndo is still expanding greatly throughout the world by being given the honor of being a full medal sport at the recent 2000 Olympic games The tenants of Taekwondo are very important to me I believe that they each contain specific meanings and lessons that will help make life flow more smoothly Ive encountered some rough times since I joined Taekwondo five years ago The tenants have helped me through those rough times The one tenant that I can relate to the most is Perseverance For example If I happen to fall a bit behind at school I think back to my Taekowndo training and realize that if I put my mind to it I can succeed The most important person to me during my Taekwondo training has been my instructor Sha bam nim Carpenter Shes provided support and encouragement for me to try my hardest at all times even if Im exhausted She makes the class fun by always changing exercises so that they dont get boring Ive benefitted from Taekwondo in many ways Ive gained flexibility speed strength and most of all indurance My training has taught me that nobody is perfect at anything whether it be a swirl hook kick or just a round kick Ive also learned to always look for ways to improve things No matter how good you are at something you can always find a way to become better Bravery was also something that I developed You have to learn to conquer your fears I remember when I was testing for my green belt
