New Students!

Our advertising campaign(s) are working! We've had a number of new students join our dojang in the past few weeks. Most of them are children, but there is one teen and one adult.

It's so exciting to see the new people come in and start at our school. They join us at the beginning of class for the first moves (riding horse stance, middle punch). Now, we have 3 or 4 rows of 7 each, and the ki-haps of this group fill the room!

Master Hughes himself usually takes the new students aside to show them the basics while the rest of us work out. He's so great with children. He said to me "I tell everyone they need to remember what it was like when they first got here." Yes, I remember: being excited and nervous and overwhelmed and feeling the power of all the students doing basic moves together. Wanting to be part of it alll!

I hope these new people, children and adults, will stick with TKD.
