I hadn’t officially announced this, but I guess now’s as good a time as any. I have taken up taekwondo about a month ago, and so I’m just a mere naive white belt.
Since I first ever started combat I was always very interested in taking up a martial art, but never quite did it. Also never knew which one to do.
Have to give credit to R1, as it’s his inspiration that has made me choose taekwondo. Basically, some martial arts (in my opinion) seem to attract arrogant people. I didn’t want that, and from what I can tell, R1’s (and others) attitude about martial arts (and his transition to combat) has always impressed me.
Then there’s the fact that taekwondo is similar to combat, so it’s useful for me to be doing a martial art that will assist me with combat.
First grading is next month, so I’ll get to see what it’s all about.
