Dear Parents,

My name is Vincent Ma. I am currently a member at the Idaho TaeKwonDo Training Center, and after almost 10 years of training, I have reached the 3rd Degree black belt certified by the Kukkiwon, the World Taekwondo Headquarters. My friend John Lee, a 1st Degree black belt, and I thought that it would be a fun idea to spread the martial art we both love, and so we decided to start a TaeKwonDo class at Chinese School. The main focus of this class will be to teach the fundamentals of TaeKwonDo, as well as to burn off some of the kids’ extra energy.

The class will generally be divided into multiple sections. For the first 5-10 minutes, we’ll warm up with stretching. Next, we’ll follow up with some dynamic warmups, as well as practicing the basic blocks and kicks of Taekwondo. This will be followed by learning/practicing Taekwondo poomsae, a series of blocks and strikes performed as if fighting off multiple opponents. Last, I like to reward the kids with a little time at the end to play a game or go outside and play on the playground.

I look forward to the coming year,

Vincent Ma
